We came home from work yesterday to find the left side of Penny's face swollen. Worried that it might be an abscessed tooth, I called the vet but the earliest they could fit her in was this evening. Oddly, the swelling went down by the time we went to bed, and was gone by morning. But when we got home today, the swelling was worse than yesterday, and it was now above her left eye as well. The vet said she probably got an infection from something (although she's not sure from what). She put Penny on an antibiotic and anti inflammatory for a few days to see if things clear up. She's acting pretty normal aside from her energy level being a bit lower. We hope she gets better soon!
