Came back to see me looking like she went 10 round with Mike Tyson (but still had her ears)! She was of course itchy... Benadryl "d her up and the next morning she was still swollen.. Another dose and almost immediately her swelling began to abate... She was almost normal a couple hours later.. I meant to give her another dose before I began helping with the SAR class, but kept checking on her and her "brother 'in the car... About an hour ago she had hives again and the swelling was starting back up... More benadryl...

She is good with appetite, and bowels and bladder work normal.. Other than benadryl droopies when on it her energy level seems normal... Curious what could have caused this as obviously not a wasp/bee/hornet sting... Maybe a spider bite?? An LEO I work with thought maybe she ate deer scat and had a reaction, but I've never had or seen that happen... I am a bit flummoxed....
Did you check her if maybe somthing allergenic cought at her teeth /gums?
I Whould also check the upper mouth and nose for clues with a flashlight.
If nothing there i whould go to the vet.
