    I am frazzled
    Dublin is allergic to any of the topical heartworm/flea meds also. We use Trifexis now. It is a monthly pill and so far so good. Take a deep breath. You are doing everything you can. He will be fine.

    He's doing better you can still see hives but they aren't bumped up anymore and he's now light pink so that's a lot better. He's pretty tired but benedryl usually makes him sleepy. Which in a way is good cause his hind leg has been bothering him so at least hes staying off of it... I've given him a good bath, a flea pill and rinsed my floors to get the Lysol off of them. I'm hoping it will clear up before I trade the husband places. Tomorrow evening I head to Chicago to sit with our youngest.

    So glad he's better. That would have frightened me too! I hope everything is OK at the hospital too!

    He still has them today but they arent as bad. I'm keeping a eye on him and if they aren't completely gone tomorrow I will drop him off with the vet.

    So im sitting here wondering if i should take Tank to the vet or not. Hes no longer itchy but he still has some lingering hives. They are about the same as they were yesterday. They dont seem to bother him and hes eating and drinking but he has had 2 prednisones and benedryl every 4 hours except for at night. What do you guys think? In these pics he hasnt had a dose of benedryl yet this is how he looked when he woke up.

    YES take him to the vet!!! This can get very dangerous and it's honestly not worth risking!

    He's pretty rashes up. I feel so bad for not noticing the fleas sooner. He was attacked by the neighbor dog Friday and we think that's where he got them
