    Default Bubba with hives this morning

    Well..interesting way to start the day! I don't know exactly what happened. I did clean the carpet in the bedroom yesterday..not sure if he's allergic to what I used? I don't know how I wouldn't have noticed them when I first got up though. THey are very apparant! I really noticed them after he came in from outside. Maybe he got stung by something? I gave him 50 mg of benedryl. Helping a little..no much. Called vets office and made an appt for this afternoon. Apparantly 50 mg is the max until tonight. He seems to be breathing fine, just a little worried. Anyone else have this problem? Other suggestions?

    I have never personally dealt with hives, perhaps putting into a room temp bath and washing him to get the chemicals off of him if it was the carpet cleaner??????

    Do you notice a lot of swelling .? If its just bumps on the skin then let the benedryl do its thing. Let the allergen move thru his system. Hopefully it'll resolve on its own by the end of the day.....

    OH you are a good MOM you keep benedryl on hand,
    the vet will give him a shot, and he'll be fine.
    always rinse at lest twice when shampooing carpet!!!!!! probably the cause, unless it is fall, and bees are out.

    Poor Bubba. We keep Benedryl and Zyrtec in the medicine cabinet. Benedryl works on Punkie but it doesn't on Maggie so she gets a Zyrtec and within an hour the hives are gone. I had the hives not too long ago and Zyrtec worked when Benedryl wouldn't. Hope Bubba is better soon .

    But can you give zyrtec after giving benedryl or would you have to wait until that wears off? Hope the benedryl kicks in for you!

    Poor Bubba, I'm sure the vet will fix him up with a shot. I would guess the shampoo is the culprit. May have to rinse again.

    Just got back from the vet. @Davidh you were right! Vet gave him a shot. I asked him if it could be because I just cleaned the carpets. He said 'no'. Typical bee sting allergic reaction. He said he could tell by the pattern of the hives. He said benedryl doesn't help a whole lot for this, but it does keep down the swelling and itching..so breathing is ok. Too bad I couldn't have gotten an earlier vet appt. It would have saved me a ton of time rinsing and rerinsing the carpets! lol! Oh well. they are super clean now! ha ha!

    @cali~jenn I wouldn't think you could give zyrtec after benedryl..similiar ingredients. They told me the max dose of benedryl is 50mgs/twice a day.

    I have always understood both from a good Bulldog Vet , and my veterinary home hand book, that under 50 lbs, they may have one 1 tab , up to 3 x a day. one morning,one noon, one before bed

    over 50 lbs they may have double that dose. 2 up to 3 x a day.
    I do not know about Zertec, that is something newer than the book!! LOL!!!!

    Yes, we just dealt with this a couple of weeks ago. I posted pictures somewhere. If you search the forum for hives it should come up. Ours was a suspected spider bite. We did benadryl at home, got a shot at the vet, and then prednisone for a few days. Hopefully it won't happen again, it's scary. Lola was covered in hives, and then her face/eyes started to swell. Not good.
