    Default Rumble has hives

    Help. Rumble developed hives and I don't know how serious they are. He has them all over his body but not his head or his face. We just went on a walk but we were on the same path as always.

    Do I take him to the emergency clinic or use benadryl or cortisone cream? Do I bath him?

    Give him Benedryl. 2 tablets

    He probably got bit by a spider or a bee sting. Watch his breathing any change and go to ER....

    I agree with Christine, she gave you great advice already. Hives are a sign of allergies, and can be caused by so many things, environmental grasses, trees, pollens, insect or spider bites, new soaps, shampoos, cleaners, laundry soaps, air fresheners, or carpet freshner powders. They can be also caused by new foods or treats. Bulldozer has had hives a few times, and I never was able to pinpoint the exact cause, but Benadryl always clears them up in a day or two. Most of the time hives are not dangerous, but you want to watch for more severe allergy symptoms like swelling of the face, mouth or eyes, and difficulty breathing, which is more serious and needs a vet. I hope Rumble is okay.

    Thank you! He actually had three hives on his neck that he scratched and opened so I took him to the ER vet. First time experience with hives and I just wanted to make sure he would be okay. They gave him two shots, sent him home with pills and told us to increase his benadryl dosage. Luckily this morning most of the hives had gone away. Now I am better prepared for next time!
