    Default update on Sparkles!

    Well I took Sparkles to her normal vet dr for a checkup...he said he got the paperwork from the ER. He put her on some Temaril-P tablets (2 tabs twice for 3 days then twice daily for 3 days then stop) & some topical spray called Genesis that im suppose to spray on her twice daily. He said that if she still has whelps/bumps on her skin by friday to give him a call back and we are going to have to start ruling things out. He said it could be something outside in the yard. He doesnt think its her food. He said unfortunately there isn't allergy testing for dogs
    so hopefully it was just something she got into and nothing major...the only thing that worries me is that she still has the allery whelps/bumps...

    I was told by a couple vets there are allergy tests out there. However they are very very expensive. So if it rarely happens, they don't suggest doing it. I hope that you don't have to worry about it ever again and I am glad Sparkles is doing much better.

    Awesome that she's feeling better. Hopefully you'll figure out what caused the reaction soon.

    There is allergy tests. I had this done with my Sarah. I think it was about $250 but not sure it was sooooo long ago. I thought it was well worth it to find out what the allergy is and go from there instead of constantly letting her be in misery.

    But I don't think you need the tests until it is an ongoing issue. If everything clears up, then no need. But you don't want to go for too long. I am sooooo glad you took her in right away. you are a great mommie

    It is such a long process to rule things out and find what is going on, in the end it is worth it, but it just takes so long. I hope you find out quickly, did you change laundry soap, fabric softner any thing like that for her bedding??
