    Default Hives for the first time :(

    Brutus is now 14 month old and got his first hive 2 days ago...I then noticed he had 2 more on his back leg. I gave him some benadryl and within a couple hours they werent as big but still there....He has 3 on his back leg and 2 on his right back leg and about 4-5 on his back...No scabs just raised bumps no redness or nothing...There has been no change in his diet/bedding/household everything has been the same for the last 12 mnths he has been with us. I hope he isnt becoming allergic to something that he has already been expsosed to and never had a reaction before....I am hearing all these tsories about mites/hives so I am starting to worry! He doesnt ever scratch so thats a plus! I did notice last night he had some redness on his chest and after the nightime benardryl dose it went right away....Any ideas what is causing this??? Anything I can do during bath time (acv/water) I belive thats what it is.

    I did take pictures but cant upload them until I get home Any help is much appreciated

    Its nothing like that! Poor Dubbie that looked uncomfortable...Glad things are under control now...Brutus has Just a couple bumps and the redness was small and on his chest but not bright red just looked irritated and now its gone! The hives are still there so I am so confused as to what is causing this!

    I would think it's likely that it is environmental...

    not sure, but i do not think Advanitx wards off spiders... Banks got the hives REALLY bad from touching a tree she is allergic to
