My Toggs face is swollen badly, it doesn't seem to bother her, but it is 10 X normal size... and that could be an under statement... she doesn't act like it hurts and its not hot or hard... just swollen... she still eats and drinks... and acts like nothing is wrong. should i be worried? or let it go since she *seems* fine?

Bee sting? See that happen before.

If you want to be proactive, I'd give her half a Benadryl tablet.

I believe it is the same just not sure of the dose IF there are different dosages.

one of my goats about two months ago had a huge swelling on her leg. it did hurt to touch it and she limped a bit. in a couple of days she was fine. possibly a snake bite or bee sting. but from the advice from the board next time i will give some benadry.

Yep, for humans. Half a tab. Or get the generic, save some $$$.

When I give benadryl I give the same dose as for humans, depending on weight and depending on the severity of the symptoms. My old vet (before I moved) told me to do it this way and I've never had any problems. I have a doe who used to be allergic to alfalfa and whenever she happened to get into it she got some benadryl.
