Well...don't! My 1st bully, Brutus (in my sig. line) broke out in hives early am too
(don't they all?) and I freaked out! Was shaking so hard could barely type to EBN.
God bless them, 4 or 5 members answered right away, did not make me feel stupid,
told me how much to give & other Benedryl info. I'd never had to give it to any of the
many dogs I'd had so I was sure his throat was going to swell shut!
You just never know and yes, it could've been worse so good for you to be proactive!
