Pet of the Month for August 2021

This is Cookie! She is a one year old Pug! Cookie came to see us with quite the allergic reaction of an unknown source. Poor little Cookie came in with a very swollen face, as well as red, irritated skin. Her dad found her all puffed up and drove her to Canyon Vet as soon as he could. Dr. Hale took Cookie under his wing and gave the sweet girl an injectable version of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to target the allergen as fast as possible, as well as a steroid shot to combat the inflammation. Cookie stayed with us for the majority of the day so we could monitor her changes throughout the day. Overtime, the swelling in her face came down, and she is back to her happy self!
