    @Luvin My Bullie I actually don't have any pictures (sorry). But I will tell you this, her bumps were about dime to nickel in size and red. Some would even ooze a little bit and then scab over. I found this picture online and this is the best depiction of what they looked like. Roxi's back was covered in them. I hope you and your baby get some relief soon because I know how stressful it is. Try giving Chaos a bath in cool water. Just rising for about 10-15 minutes and I even tried vinegar too. I just put some in a cup and then dabbed it on the areas with a washcloth.
    Keep me updated on little Chaos!

    @RoxiBear- how has it been going with the new meds? Were they expensive? What you described sounds just like what we've been going through w/ Jackson. He's basically had hives since we got him mid-July. We've switched him over to better food and his hives are still going strong. I'm going to talk to the vet about what I've read here. Thanks for the info.

    Hey all!

    Today is Roxi's update after visiting the new vet and being on the liver enzymes and coQ for a week.

    Week One:

    All of her hives are completely gone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Her skin looks great!!!!! She does have a few small areas that are still healing but they look so much better than they did before!
    She seems to be feeling so much better!

    The only thing that I can complain about is that she does have some tear staining. I didn't give her benadryl or zyrtec for about 2 days after visiting the vet because I thought I wasn't supposed to. Well come to find out I could so I believe that the tear staining is from seasonal allergies. But it could also be that her liver is getting rid of all the toxins she had built up and that could be causing it as well ( that's my story and I'm sticking to it).

    I will keep updating weekly!

    Thank you all for checking on us!

    @LoveMyBully82 I don't think the meds were bad at all but I was willing to pay anything to get her some relief! They were about $15-17 for a 30 day supply. So about $30 for the two meds. And she won't have to be on them forever, just long enough to get her liver functioning and filtering again at its optimum level and help her build up her immunity.

    @Luvin My Bullie How is Chaos doing?

    @RoxiBear Thanks for asking Chaos went back to the vet yesterday and the vet said he looks much much better. Now, to his worrisome momma, some places look better and some are still bad..... The vet still says his was a skin irritation, not an allergy because it didn't itch or scratch himself, etc. He gave him another round of the cephalexin and a slighty higher dose of the antifungal med and a new bottle of the fungal shampoo. He says this should do the trick! I hope and pray so please keep your fingers crossed!!!
