    DefaultTucks eye is swollen?/ update 5:30

    UPDATE 5:30pm
    Well, Tuck is fine. The vet seems to think that is deff. a bug bite. Maybe mosquito. Her eye is fine inside, just the lid was swollen. They did something for the itching, and her eyelid is totally normal now. I stil don't see a bite place, but vet knows i guess, better than I. She is playing like normal and eating and drinking good. I guess she just did get a bite. Thank you all for wishing well I appreciate it. !!

    Vet called, said he thinks its a bug bite. But w/0 seeing it, he can't say for sure. He said we could use benadryl for her, and watch her. She doesn't seem to paw at it, or find it hurtful at all. I don't see a puncture wound at all either. Poor tuck, I might just take her in to be on the safe side

    I called the vet, haven't gotten a call back yet. I just noticed Tuck's eye is swollen, it's not red inside or anything, just swollen. I am wondering of a bug bite, but what bugs in winter. any ideas? Should i give benadryl or not... I hate when they are not feeling good. She's drinking water okay. :P

    Definitely swollen. I'm thinking bug bite since it's just one eye.

    Has she been pawing it?

    No advice re: benadryl.

    Poor Tuck! Since you were able to post a photo to this forum, maybe you could email it to the vet to save yourself a trip?

    I deff. could email it to the vet, but I just want to make sure she's good.
    Vet visit is good. She might get her rabies today, unless she's sick anyways

    I hope it's nothing serious. Looks very much the same as my son did once when his eyelid was bitten by a mozzie, that closed up completely

    Won't someone please feed me!
