Tonight we took Clyde in for his very first emergency room visit! Yea!!

When we came home this evening, we let Clyde out of his crate and he looked like Rocky Balboa after a mix up with Dolph Ljundgren. One eye was almost swollen shut and his jowls were puffy. Poor guy, he must have discovered a bees nest this afternoon in the back yard.

We are lucky enough to have a 24 hour vet hospital just a stone throw from the house. 45 minutes, a Benadryl shot, a steroid shot, and $160 later we took him back home.

He should be fine, other than a face like a football he is acting completely normal. The swelling has already gone down noticeably. The Vet told us that the shots should make him sleepy but we haven't been so lucky....

Here is a picture of him after we brought him home.

If Carries becomes a Vet Tech, you'll save that $160 next time! :)

Poor baby. I have never seen anyone so happy about having a face the size of a football before :)
