We awoke to hives!
I should call this post "Adventures With Lilly!" The poor sweetheart and that's what she is. I/we don't know what caused this reaction or what she possibly allergic to. But, we'll certainly keep watch. You know - if you have animals, or kids for that matter, there's never a dull moment. :D I gave her a couple Benadryl and it is working - thank the Lord. It does make her sleepy though which is okay so we can keep her resting and out of the heat. The photo doesn't show the hives - they are shrinking and she also doesn't like to be bothered to much so few pics. While surfing the web for info on hives I came across some valuable information for you out there with dogs. One thing we know is that Benadryl seems to work what we didn't know is they have a toxic reaction to Sudafed. I have never even thought of Sudafed for a dog and I'm not sure what it would do for hives anyway. Please check that article out here. It's a site with questions from pet owners and answers from vets. Another link with good info is here scroll to hives. I also need to mention that I came across a nice blog called The Happy Pit Bull Blog check it out there's a great dog called Dozer there! He also had hives - an older post - Lilly wasn't that bad. I happy for that~ BTW - you can click on newer posts on Dozer to see hive updates, he's a sweet pup too!
