    Default hives

    i came home today after being at my house for 2 days to hives on sarah. bout 4 or 5 nice sized hives on her rump area. i looked all over and could find no more and no other signs of allergy other than red eyes and runny nose. i have no idea what is going on as he has been here with her. i dont know if he fed her something or what. i do notice that the windows are open and wonder if her outside allergies came inside. i texted him and he has given her no allergy meds today. i gave her 2 benadryl and she is laying down sleeping now. like i said i see no other problems like hives on belly or red streaks or stuff like that. just a few hives. she has had no hives for like a month now. any thoughts about this?

    I'm a little confused ... who is "he"?? I'm guessing you've been away for a couple of days, so you might need to question "he" more closely and see if something happened or she was given something.

    To be honest, anybody other than you is probably not going to be as careful purely because they haven't had to battle the consequences. So something very innocent that they thought nothing of, could have been given to her, or she could have come into contact with it.

    Now she is in your care .. see if the hives start to settle down after a couple of days.

    @kazzy220 is right; the BF could have done something - gave her something, dropped something, etc. - and have no idea what it was. Maybe next time you go home, take Sarah with you! Hugs to you @cowsmom - I know you've struggled terribly with Sarah's skin issues!

    It has gotta be the environment... Banks has such issues this time of year. Face is almost always pink for something out in the air. Nitschke was even worse - when he was a puppy we swore we were going to have to put him in a bubble to keep the allergies away

    @2BullyMama Yes she still has the hives on and off and tonight I could swear I could see them popping out when I took her outside so I'm thinking its the air. Thanks for confirming this some more

    Ohmygod...poor baby! How's she doing today @cowsmom? @2BullyMama - how's Banks?

    Grandma is sniffling and snorking around here too for the last couple of days. I thought SPRING was allergy season? I'm not allergic to anything so I have no frame of reference. Well, I am allergic to tequilla. When I drink it I break out in handcuffs - but that's it.
