    Default sarah is at the vets

    i got up with sarah today and she ate and went pp and as it was early bout 5am i went back to sleep. she came in and got in bed with me as usual but was very restless and itchy. i thought maybe her yeast was acting up and so i got her up and me and we went into living room and i turned her over and she has hives all over her tummy. I gave her a whole benadryl immediately and then in a short while more hives and her face started swelling around the mouth. i call vets and she will be there early so i go and i get there and the vet finally gets there and she gives her 2 shots. adrenaline and dexamethazone and gives me some stuff and says she should get better soon. almost out of gas so drive the short distance to gas station and she is no better. its been like 15 minutes since i left vet and she is not better. i drive back to vets and her face still swollen and her eyes swelling and she dont seem at all better. I had to leave her at vets as they were so busy and im a nervous wreck waiting to hear how she is. its the worst feeling in the world. im crying as i write this im so upset. vet dont know what happened maybe got stung or bit. i know logically that she will get more meds and should be fine but feeling wise im a mess. please pray she is ok. gosh i feel so helpless right now. cant even be with her to hold her and stroke her and tell her its ok.

    I know exactly what you are going through! About two weeks ago I had to rush Mack to the vet because of the same thing. The waiting is the worst part but think positive and know she is in the best hands.

    ok got her home and she is ok the meds just needed more time to kick in i guess. vet did say her back leg lymph nodes were swollen so now i have to give her another round of antibiotics and she gave me some prednisone to give. Gosh i hope the swollen nodes dont mean anything. anyway her face is back to normal and all so just wanted to update everyone on her.

    Glad she's doing better! I hope the lymph node swelling turns out to be nothing more than part of the rest of it, from whatever bit/stung her.

    Oh, gosh! I know how you are feeling as we had the same exact thing with Gator last Saturday. Face swelling, hives all over his body, everything. We also took him immediately and had the shots. They went down and we were told to give him 2 benadryl every 8 hours (he weighs 50lbs) for the next few days. He is still getting a hive here or there a week later but when I see them, I give him a benadryl and they go away. We think it was from a bee sting or bug bite of some kind because it spread so quickly.

    I know that panic! *hugs* to both of you!
