    Christmas Day, Brutus broke out in huge hives, no Vets open, most fortunately his face
    & airways weren't affected and Benedryl helped, never knew what he got into, no new
    foods or chew toys, it must have been a contact w/an allergen but what? I was a basket
    case, EBN'ers held my hand & comforted me (I LOVE you guys (& girls) as they are doing
    for you.

    Agree w/the severity of her symptoms you need an EpiPen (if okay for dogs) on hand, always
    Benedryl & lemon juice to squirt in mouth if phlgem closes it up. Give her smooshy kisses for us!

    Matilda is okay!!!!!

    I picked her up this morning and she's good as new, just drowsy. Her swelling is thankfully gone! I will post pics and what medication they gave us later! What a scary experience though...

    The vet told me that if we have another experience like this, you can get a shot just to have in case! But were not positive it was a bee, so for now, she gave us some extra steroid in case she has another outburst to give to her on the way to the hospital...

    My heart rate has finally slowed a bit but I'm never letting her out of my sight again!!

    Hurrah, Matilda! Stay away from those bees, they're not good for your Mama! I'm so glad to hear you're all better. Or at least, almost all better.

    This is her before and after. Believe it or not, the "before" picture was actually at the hospital when she was stable enough to see us. I (obviously) didn't think to get a picture before she was treated, it was such a scare! Her eyes were completely swollen shut.

    As you can see, this is how she was when I picked her up, swelling is totally gone. THANK GOD! They prescribed her Temaril, which I guess is a steroid, and told us to use it for two more days, just to make sure she doesn't have another outbreak.

    She also gave me extra so I can give her some while rushing her to the hospital. I'm taking her to her normal vet tomorrow for some lingering skin issue (I asked the vet we saw this morning, she said they'd have to run a few tests so we're doing it at our regular vet), and I'm going to ask him about allergy tests so I can be sure it's bees and maybe get the epi-pen sort of shot for her just in case.

    How on earth am I supposed to trust her around now?! I am already crazy overprotective, and I trust her for two seconds, and look what happens! I am already such a worrywart. She was playing in my boyfriend's parents' huge yard, and I made them put an x-pen up, so she couldn't get near the pool, and she could only go about 10 ft away from the door. And she still managed to get into a potentially deadly situation!!

    And last time we were there, I had her on a leash inside because there was a party and I didn't trust everyone to keep the doors shut, and she somehow found a silica-gel packet under a chair! Thankfully I noticed and snatched it from her just as she tore it open.

    What am I supposed to do now? I am terrified to let her do anything!

    So Happy she is all better now. Just like kids, bullies can find ways to get into way too much trouble. There is nothing wrong with keeping her on a leash when you are not at home. You never know what they can get into when you are away from home.
