    Default Winnie has hives everywhere!

    Our poor little guy has broken out in hives. However, this is not the first time it has happened. We believe it was caused from some bushes he discovered earlier today. I am trying to avoid the animal hospital if at all possible. I have given him about 50mg of benadryl about an hour ago. Does anyone have any advice on anything else I can do for my little guy? Thank you all in advance!!!

    Usually the dose is 1 mg. per pound of body weight, but when they have a bad allergic reaction which sounds like what he has, you can give 2 mg. per pound of body weight. Hope your baby gets better soon.

    I will definitely do that! How many hours should I wait between doses?

    You can also give him a room temp/cool (not cold) bath if the itching is bothering him. The benedryl should help, though. When Lola had hives all over (turkey-induced), I think I was more affected than she was. Visually it was very frightening, but Lola wasn't really itchy at all. They went down in two days.

    Great advice above. I would definitely get rid of the bushes or fence them off. We hope Winston gets well soon.

    He is just about to get a bath, we will most definitely be removing the bushes, and he is doing better today just sleeping mostly. Thank you everyone for your help and concern! I will keep you posted throughout the day! -image-jpg

    We have a Winnie too! My boxers and Bulldogs have had hives occasionally through the years. Ours were always caused by insect bites, even though we could rarely find the actual bite. One particular time I remember with my bully Rosie, we headed straight for the emergency vet. Her face was swollen and she was having trouble breathing. Hives didn't seem to bother them much.

    we had to run to vet for the same thing once! Poor babies. They are so sweet but have bad luck with their skin 😔 my husband actually named Winnie and I fell in love with it!
