    Default URGENT: My baby is having a horrible reaction please HELP!!!!!

    Ok Im new to here and need advice...The other day we gave Gypsy a bath and groomed her, well the next morning I let her out to pee and when she came up to the door it looked like something bit her, it was a large circular patch of wetness and oozing stuff. I attempted to clean it up with peroxide and dry it. She wasn't her normal self she wanted to sleep and kept shaking her head. Well by night time it was 4x's bigger and red and oozing smelling wetness. Now its spread to the other side and going down her chest and legs and between her shoulder blades it also looks like she has bumps all over like its spreading there or maybe hives I looked at the bumps and they are small red bumps and look like their gonna flare up at any moment. What is it?? Can it be her food? or did something bite her while outside or can it be from grooming and bathing her??? I have an appointment later today but what can I do I shaved what I could and cleaned it with peroxide and cortisone cream

    Has to be an allergic reaction to either an insect bite and/or chemicals on the grass.
    The flare up occurred from one moment to the other...?

    Also, im thinking if after the bath, was he rinsed well..? Possibly shampoo stayed on his skin and that soap is now burning him...?

    If you can, shave the areas. The vet will be doing this anyways..
    Shave the areas and soak him with fresh water to cool his skin.
    You can appy Neosporin ointment all over the rashy areas & that will cool him ...
    good luck.! keep us posted...

    I'd give her a benedryl since it looks like an allergic reaction. Dosage is 1mg per pound every 8 hours. My boys are approx 50lb each and I give them 1 pill, morning and night. You did good by shaving and cleaning with peroxide. I'd head over to the vets now too. It's almost 3 anyways. The people ahead of you should notice the reaction and will be nice enough to offer you their appointment.

    G'luck!

    I saw this once before on a bullie that had a bad reaction to shampoo. Take him to the vet asap. The one I saw was there being boarded for treatment.

    As quickly as this is spreading I worry that her Trachia (sp?) is going to get swollen... I would get her in right away she needs a steroid to stop it from spreading... Besides grooming, has there been any other recent changes? Like over the past week? Sometimes it takes a few days to cause a reaction. Any change in kibble, soaps, toys, try to think of anything and everything.

    I just took a better look at the pictures on my laptop. It looks exactly the same as the bullie I saw at my vets office a few years ago and I had asked what happened. They told me that the owners bathed him with a fancy human shampoo and the poor guy woke up like that the next day. He was being boarded for treatment only because his skin mom had gone into early labor and they did't want to miss a treatment. Apparently his treatment was both topical and pill, but they did not have the wounds covered at all.
