Default Swollen front paw

Truman has had on and off for the past week a swollen front paw and leg. I've soaked it in epson salt a few times but it doesn't seems to be helping. we were just heading out for a long walk to the park when I noticed it was swollen again so we had a shot walk. He is not favoring it at all and after walking for about 10-15 minutes the swelling has gone down. Any ideas? I am planning a vet visit Monday, just hoping it can wait.

Kava's has done this on and off for the last few weeks. It is just back to normal (about 1 wk now). I gave lots of benadryl and just let it do its thing. She wasn't favoring it (weight bearing). My best guess is she was bitten by a spider or a wasp in the yard.

geez - I hope not. Hoping it's just a bug bite or something minor.
