    Default Worried about little Zoey (Allergies?)

    We had two Great Grandchildren with Birthday parties this weekend. We took Bailey and Zoey. Saturday was the first party. The temps were below 80 degrees, we were there from noon till almost 4 pm. Stayed in their shaded backyard. Zoey spent most of the time in a stroller but petted and attention by all when she was out and in the stroller. She was pretty lazy, just laying in the stroller for the most part. On the way home my wife noticed her face and paws were very pink. After getting home we noticed her belly broke out in quite a rash. She also had some loose stools. And was up a lot last night.

    Today the second birthday party. We only stayed 2 hours (from 2 - 4 pm) and it was a bit warmer but she stayed in the stroller the whole time under a shaded pavilion. On the car ride home she threw up, just dog food, pretty much undigested from lunch 3 hours prior. We bought her some benadryl, we gave her some 2 hours before she threw up. Took her temp after we got home, it's OK 101.6. She's thrown up twice more since we've been home (only 2 hours). The wife gave her some pepto bismo.

    I guess she got into something she was allergic to at the first party when playing in the back yard. Is this all allergic reactions, maybe plus the all the attention and excitement?

    Just worried about our baby. She is sleeping a lot.

    Now refusing to eat her evening meal. I only feed her 1/2 cup 3 times a day. She did drink a little after refusing to eat.

    Ooooh poor baby! Does look like pink from allergies..maybe grass or pollen. If you can give her a nice bath..rinse well..a Benadryl will help too. Let's see if @Sherry has any other ideas.

    you can try a bit of yogurt on her kibble..might entice her to eat.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Did the bath with ACV and warm water rinse early this morning. I just got back from buying another Benadryl, we bought 2 types of Benadryl, the pills this morning and children liquid tonight for her second dose tonight. I bought some pedialyte to give her, we added it to her kibble and she ate it. Yeah!

    Ohhh good! I don't know about the liquid Benadryl... But it IS grape flavored! Lol..I'm glad she ate Tom..I bet she is better in the morning. If she still has the rash..give her a Benadryl. It will help with any itching she might have too.

    Oh poor baby... It looks like an allergic reaction to me. Here in TN this weekend was really high for pollen, so maybe it's that or the grass... Hopefully the Benadryl will do the trick. Keep us posted!!!

    I am thinking it kinda sounds like stomach upset, I'm glad she ate last night. How is she this morning?

    Hate to jump the gun and speak to early but so far so good. She ate at 7:15, a little less than normal but so far holding everything down. Gave her a about 3/4 of a 1/2 cup and a good spoon of yogurt. She also got another dose of Benadryl. She has also had to poohs and a little soft but not bad.

    She still not herself, still a little pink in her face and still has her belly rash and either hanging out by the glass door or lying in her kennel.

    Tom, buy some LOCAL honey (at farmers market, health sore, etc) and drizzle
    about a teasp over her food or just give separately, it will help desensitize her to
    local pollen, grasses, etc Wonderful to hear she ate some & is less pink. GOD bless!

    I'm thinking along the same lines as @JAKEISGREAT but I also think the heat and stress of it all has her upset to the point she's got a tummy ache and hives. Benadryl is the key and lots of fresh water. quiet and calm. she's such a baby yet, prob not used to so much comotion . keep us posted please

    I agree but now she has been sitting by the door all morning unless she was sleeping and when I take her out she would go to the car and wine. Also the neighbors came out, ask if they could pet Zoey and Bailey; of course they went crazy for attention then Zoey cried and tugged at her leash when they left and went back inside.

    As of the last 1/2 hour or so she has been romping and playing with Bailey, so feeling much better. Yeah!

    Thanks all for your concern and comments. She's doing much better and will be fine.
