I’ve been working on a post about the boys’ Halloween costumes – and if you follow on Instagram, you saw Emmett trying on one option last night – but UGH! Fun is on hold.
If you’ve been reading for a while, you know Cooper has a sensitive little system. He’s allergic to everything – and that includes, as we discovered this morning, fire ants.
He got attacked in the yard. His face started to swell. He threw up twice then sort of staggered around the kitchen. Here’s my baby just before his eyes swelled shut.
Wahh!! By the time we got there, he had all these tiny little bumps under his eyes and on top of his nose. Anyway, they’re keeping him at the animal hospital, and I’m in a panic.
I’ll finish the Halloween post this weekend, including a delightful photoshoot of my guys (and gal!) trying on 7 different costumes! In the meantime, I’m going to go put the vet’s office on speed dial so I can check on him every hour on the hour!
Has your dog experienced anything like this before? What kind of allergies do you deal with?
UPDATE: Cooper is back home from the animal hospital! He get dexamethasone and diphenhydramine injections, and we have a prescription to give him every four hours for the next 24. His face seems back to normal, and the vet said, “He can see again!” I’m feeling incredibly grateful. What a scare. Thank you for all the kind words and wishes!!!
