First of all Happy Gotcha Day to Nicky ......11 years of pampered living at your house. :cloud9:

Any bug bite can cause an allergic reaction so I would go ahead and give her some Benadryl. If it's a bite it will work fairly quick to being the swelling down so if it doesn't help then it's vet time. :)

Hope it's nothing serious. :fingerscr :goodvibes:

It could be a sprain, too. Our guys are all getting frisky because the weather is so nice and spraining their paws leaping up on the deck :rolleyes:

If you think it's a sprain, you can put some ice on it. Keeping her quiet will help a lot, too. I hope she's better soon :goodvibes:
