    Thank you all for the replies! (I am new to this). His vet opens in 45 min, so we'll be at the door when they open. Chumley, yes, his face looks similar to that. He's finally sleeping, I just took this, but it's not the bad side, I can't get to the other side at the moment. The bumps, you cant see in the pic, but the 2 behind his ear feel like there are m&m sized (maybe a tad smaller) and are hard as well. I can't think of anything that has changed and he's been on the same food with no problems since I got him at 10 weeks old. Poor little guy has already gone through 3 surgeries (he had cherry eye in both eyes and popped the stitches twice) and now this!

    In regards to the couple of fleas....I was thinking it was from them, but would that really cause that much damage? I did use the antibacterial shampoo, but the vet said the ingredients weren't too harsh and didn't believe it was that.

    Food wise, he gets very tiny pieces of human scraps here and there, but again, I can't think of anything that he hasn't previously had.

    He's mainly indoors and we go on walks because I don't have a backyard, so I am not sure if the gardeners have done anything (pretty sure they haven't, lol)

    He does get into everything, so he could have very well eaten something, I just don't know what...I feel so helpless!!

    Well Shawna, I know you feel helpless...poor babies~you & Sherman!

    Yes, if they are allergic to fleas, ONE bite could do this to them, I too, think
    it could be the problem as you mentioned finding a couple of fleas but that
    was all. Or, possibly, on your waks, someone had newly sprayed their yard
    with pesticides and he reacted to it.

    Praying for the answer to be found, the vet having a solution and some QUICK
    relief for dear Sherman & sending comfort to you, dear one. Hang on & GOD bless!

    RIP beloved boy.

    The same thing happened to my Nash i did everything I've vinegared everything and he's never in his crate But he was for a couple of days right before this happened so I vinegared his crate tray and underneath the tray along the lip of the tray was a big ugly spider....... It cleared up and we are assuming it was a spider bite good luck

    Spiders are so mean!!! They are the only things I am afraid of I can deal with snakes bugs animals but I am terrified of a spider, why you may ask, because when I was seven months pregnant with my son I got bitten by this teeny weeny almost microscopic spider I knocked off my leg while my legs were propped on a wood pile the next morning my leg was swollen in that spot and there was something very hard in the center and it was hot and itchy.

    Def sounds like a reaction to something! Poor thing! I hope he gets better soon. I can understand your worry. Do you have any plants inside or out he might have gotten into? Or as others have said, it old be n fleas too. If you feel badly, remember you can always take him back to vet or specialist!

    @sobitterlysweet few questions for you, when Sherman goes outside to do his business is he on a leash walking or free in the yard? If he is free in the yard I would put him on a leash for the time being it could be a reaction to a plant in the yard. This way you can manage what he comes in contact with. Another question, are you sure it was a flee and not a tic? We had an issue with Bacon breaking out like that and it was a new plant that we had put in the yard and he was really allergic to it.

    I was thinking the same thing, it could be aa allergic reaction to flea bites. What type of preventative flea medication do you use? We use Revolution from June to November, it covers fleas, ticks, and heartworm.

    Make sure you keep benadryl around all the time. With a serious reaction like this the next one could be worse. Definitely get on some monthly flea control. Sounds like it was a really scary experience take care of each other.
