    We went for a long walk earlier through fields and when we came back he had two big lumps on the side of his mouth, so i assumed he'd either eaten something (has happened before) or been bitten. But after a while his whole mouth swelled up, and he's got lumps all over his head, back and stomach and his skin is bright red. He's constantly scratching them and he just doesn't seem to have any energy to move which is so unlike him. Any ideas what this could be?

    It could mean that you need to visit the vets, pronto. Then again, maybe not.

    Sounds like an allergic reaction possibly to something he's eaten..especially if his mouth swelled up first. But im no vet...

    sounds like an allergic reaction to something. you could give the dog a benadrill or piriton or other anti histamene but Id reallty reccomend the vet ASAP allergic reactions can mean swelling of the throte.

    I've already given him some piriton and i think he looks a little bit better. i don't know whether to wait or just take him now.

    Well thats him yesterday, you can't see it that great but he's really red on his stomach and swollen around his face. And he kept sprinting off and sprinting back and lying that all day. it was strange..

    And this is him today; making a full recovery it would seem :



    Thanks for your help though everyone
