    Default Hives.

    Well....it's always something with these babies isn't it???
    I just found out yesterday that Stoagie has hives, some on his back legs, back, and sides....so of course I turned to EBN to see if I could find any help (I just looked through the forums instead of posting about it, figured itd be quicker that way)
    I had introduced some new treats to him so those are now OFF the menu, I also washed his bedding and bathed him just incase it was something that got on his
    I found pictures and posts about hives that were exactly like Stoagies so I have started giving him Benadryl, since last night. He has only had 2 and I notice some shrinkage in the hives but they are still there. I just wanted to know how long to keep him on the Benadryl, and when should these hives go away??
    Hes about 25 pounds so Im giving him 1 every 6 hours.
    The two loves of my life fart and snore like crazy....what does that say about me??? ;D

    You can keep him on the Benedryl until they go away, a day or so, up to two weeks my vet says. I stop giving it to mine when they are cleared up. A couple of days usually, except for the eye goop, that takes longer

    You took the right steps, just watch for any other signs of problems just in case. Hopefully it was just the treats! Keep us posted.

    So happy to hear! Brutus is red and usually it's very easy to see if he has one.
