Q. My four month old Golden Retriever who is about twenty to thirty pounds presented with sudden eye and muzzle swelling. Gave her benadryl

A. It sounds like allergic reaction. Benadryl can help ( 1-2 mg per kilo) but sometimes it can have poor effect in animals. See your vet if you will notice panting, difficulty breathing, weakness, general rash or benardyl will not improve the situation.
