    does look like hives but sarah usually get them on her back so hard to say but some type of rash. benadryl can be given 1 pill per 25 pounds. also some hydrocortisone cream can be put on it to help with the itching also. also finding out the source is good to but since your going to the vet tomorrow they should be able to help with that. maybe see about an allergy test while you are there. ill tag some others who can help also. @2BullyMama @Sherry @JAKEISGREAT @desertskybulldogs @Davidh

    Ouchie! It looks like a reaction to something. Did it show up all at once? I would definitely I've Benadryl and use a topical to help with itching. Maybe after it calms down and not so pink you can see if he was bitten? Any new food or treats? Poor guy. Others will probably have a better idea but I'd treat the symptoms right away to help with his discomfort.

    you may want to start with one and 1/2 pills and give him a bath incase he got into something he is reacting to. or 2 pills if he weights close to 40 pounds with that kinda reaction. if he has trouble breathing then get him to the er vet or if his face swells. keep us posted and dont freak out. it will be ok.

    Definitely get some Benedryl as everyone has said, plus as @cowsmom has said you may want to bath him or at least wipe his underside down with a wet cloth to try to get the irritant off him. Has anything changed lately? Sprayed the yard with anything lately? New floor cleaner? Just trying to figure out what might has caused this.

    i gave him benedryl now just waiting. i also picked up some hydro-cortisone cream. nothing has changed in the environment. i just don't get it he is allergic to grass but hes only just turned pinkish red if he wasn't wiped down right away he has never had hives before or any rashes.

    got to thinking, the neighbor behind us and the one next to them started having a lawn service come out for lawn maintenance (not mowing) could the chemicals in their yards possibly make it over to ours?
