I'm sure an expert will be along soon to give you some proper advice, but I'm wondering if it could be some sort of bite or sting or something?
What a worry our boys and girls can be sometimes - I know at the slightest ailment, I fly into a panic over Stanley.. I'm thinking it can't be anything too serious though, as the lump came up so quickly. I'll be interested to hear what the diagnosis is. In the meantime, remain calm!

oh dear whats star been up to has she been in the garden

i would say a possible sting...

rosze was out in the garden earlier this year all was fine she came in and her face literally grew lumps in front of me its scary ill admit they were mostly gone by the evening she was stung either by a bee or wasp,

let us know how the vet trip goes..

if you have some piriton in the house you can give him some of that :wink:

Would seem an unusual reaction to worming? I would have thought it's more likely to be a sting, there are lots of bees and wasps around at the moment.

Although the vet said not to take her in until tomorrow, make sure you keep an eye that she's able to breathe as normal, since the swelling is by her jaw, make sure it's not affecting her throat.

Did he say it was ok to give her something like piriton? I have given that to one of mine a few times because of a reaction on her face - after talking to the emergency vet. Might be a good idea to ring back and have a chat about something like that if you didn't already discuss it.

Hope the swelling goes back down soon.

Well shes just been around the garden on the lead, shes not allowed out on her own.

her breathing is fine, infact all is normal apart from this huge hard lump on her face!

No other advise to give. Im with the others, it sounds like a sting. Vets tomorrow. Get used to it. They are great dogs, but they do puss you to the limit at times. Sending get well vibes

yes i agree with what others are saying, its most likely to be a sting, my daughters little border terrier was stung on her cheek and that swelled up really badly, the vet will put your mind at rest tomorrow
