    Poor baby girl.

    Panalog is an ointment from your vet, maybe, not sure about SA but I'm sure they have something similar. It's great for numerous things- get the ingredients off the internet and bring to your vet next time you see her.

    Benedryl or something similar should be at your store.

    Here is the active ingredient, in benedryl, the dosage is mg per pound:

    Active ingredient
    (in each capsule)Purpose
    Diphenhydramine HCl 25 mgAntihistamine

Thankfully Boeboe seems better, she's not scratching herself and the bumps on her bum is smaller, almost gone. She still has some red dots on her tummy but they look better too. Her head I think is ok cos it's scabs by now... If I had the option of taking her to another vet I would, I'm seriously fed up this is my baby Boeboe girl we're talking about:'(


    What do you guys think? If the vet calls do I dare to wait till tomorrow morning when it's cooler again? I really can't walk her there now, it's like living on Mercury outside What can I get at the pharmacy to put on her tummy? I don't wanna give her pills cos I don't know what's going on But there must be some kind of cream I can use? @bullmama, are there different kinds of hydro-cortisone creams? are all safe you think? I don't know what panalog ointment is, I'll ask at the pharmacy if they have it. I'm thinking I should just take the pictures of her to the pharmacy and they can help me, I've done it before, they are apparently better than the vet....

I'm sure you don't have Claritin there, but you can run to the drugstore and get an antihistamine. Just be sure it doesn't have any decongestant in it, and it's unflavored. Can you call your vet and ask how much to give?

    I'm thinking it's a definite reaction to something because of the hives. Generally, those clear up quickly with the right meds.
    I agree with Ellie... hives.

    Thanks everyone came home with Boeboe from the vet a couple of hours ago, she got cortisone pills so hopefully she'll feel better very soon. The vet thinks it's the change from normal food to diet food we made about 3 weeks ago together with the changes cos we're moving next week.

    Bennie's wounds on his throat she thinks is just cos of the folds, she says now especially when it's warmer it gets moist and causes the itch and so on

    So pills for Boeboe and special shampoo for Bennie and we should hopefully be sorted out now
