    So I've run into this problem yesterday after noon when I got home. His head was extremely swollen and his eyes had bubbles/foam coming out of them yesterday. today his face in mainly swollen on the lower part and is sagging a lot. It appears to hurt if i touch his head, and is very tender/squishy on the swollen part. currently I have put antibiotics in his food and water but it doesn't appear he has ingested any of the food or water so i might have to try giving him antibiotics by force feeding? I have no clue what happened to him maybe someone on here has any ideas about what i should do?
    Any help would be appreciated Thanks

    Could he have been stung by a bee, or bitten by a spider? Just a guess.

    I'm thinking a bite or sting of some kind
