I came from a dog park and my dog's (Sasha) eye lid is very swollen. What can I do before going to vet?

Dear Deborah,

You could flush the eye with saline solution made for the eyes. I would also give Benadryl and vitamin C orally to minimize the swelling reaction in the body. In the future you might want to have some PROMAXOL in the house for emergency situations to offer comfort until you get into your veterinarian's office. It is liquid and neutral in taste so it is easy to administer to most pets.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
