    Default Help! His hives won't go away!

    So we tried to switch his food on Wednesday and he immediately got hive from a small amount. I have been pumping him full of benedryl for the last few days and they will not go away. He isn't itchy and it doesn't seem to bother him but they look awful. His poop is also really soft. We stopped the probiotics Wednesday night and last night could that be why is poo is so soft? I washed all his bedding vacuumed and gave him a rinse thinking maybe it was from rolling in the grass and it didn't help at all. I feel so bad. I thankfully got him to use the pill pockets for his pheno and realized that they are chicken too but he has been using them for a few weeks with no problems. Maybe with trying to switch his food and the pill pockets both containing chicken are making them worse now. IDK I am at a loss.

    I am thinking that we may need to go bland as well and try and come up with a game plan from there. We are going to go to the store and see if there is another option for the pill pockets that he won't be able to figure out.
