Just thought I'd mention it cos I noticed you have just increased her food. I would also add that Billy tends to get diarrhoea too as a first sign that something is not right for him, then hives follow a day or two later. We've been through a few kibbles already and he's only 22 weeks old

    I had thought about that when he said they upped the food intake, that maybe more of the ingredient that is causing an issue could have triggered the hives. But then I thought maybe I was being silly or overly cautious.... but now maybe not. Also, when Tidus got that nasty hotspot he had it came about 5 days after I put him on the new food, and once he was fully on it is when the hotspot appeared.

    Hmmmm.... I wonder if it is an ingredient in the food for Lulu?

    Oh poor baby, she probably got bit by something, it doesn't necessarily have to be a bug from outside, maybe a spider or something, or maybe she came into contact with something new around her? Maybe a bath would help, to take off anything that she might have come in contact with, a shampoo with oatmeal or chamomile , something soothing to her skin might help with the itchiness and discomfort . Good luck, I hope she gets better soon.

    Spoke to the vet. He advised Benadryl every 4 hours for the next few days. Like he said to pinpoint a allergy is very difficult. He hopes this is just something she will grow out of. Just took these pics of her eyes. She had a bigger outbreak again this morning.

    My Dolly gets these hives every year at this time, not as severe as Lulu. I'm sure it''s coming from either the fallen Maple tree leaves or the Weeping Cherry tree leaves. It's always after she's been outside. We try to keep the leaves raked and bagged.

    Lulu woke up from a nap and was wheezing pretty bad so we called the vet and brought her in as an emergency case.
    The vet administered Dexamethasone along with some Vanectyl P pills. Her wheezing has stopped and the hives seem to be subsiding slightly.
    Hopefully the next few hours things will improve more.

    Stay tuned.

    I'm so sorry this is happening to sweet LuLu. I hope this calms down and you are able to figure out the problem. She looks so uncomfortable and you seem so upset.
