if it has not resolved with the prednisone and diet trial then it most likely is not hives. you should definately discuss the possability of pyoderma with your vet, a round of antibiotics should help. hives usually don't flake and scale, but a bacterial skin infection can.

well you don't want to make her vomit because it can get stuck in the esophagus on the way back up, so i totally agree there, but it can still cause problems in the pyloris or her bowels in general. a pit should be able to be seen on xray, so if she does start getting sick get her in to the vet asap...
