my new puppy was bitten on the neck. He is swollen, and he isn't using his front paws much, although he is still nursing and still has reflexes. His mommy is on antibiotics. Also the puppy is sleeping more than he usually does. Does anyone have any advice on what to do> Can I give my puppys mom ibprofen to lessen the swelling? Anything to watch for?

Never give an animal over the counter medicine! They don't always react the same as humans do. Please take your pup to the vet immediately. Don't wait for a response here when your dog is in pain. Vets only volunteer their time and they aren't on here very often. You really need to get this pup to an emergency vet. Please let us know what they say.

Your puppy needs to see a vet. We do not have one here and would be unable to diagnose over the internet if we did.
