I'm not quite sure what Emily is allergic to, but everytime she spends a lot of time outdoors, she gets hives.

Is it bugs? Grass? Something else? The go away pretty quickly but I still feel sorry for her.

Wow, after seeing her, I feel dumb for wanting to cry to the vet that Bellas are bad, Bellas dont look anything like your dog. How sad, I hope she is better now, I hate that they have to suffer. :frown:

maggie got hives REALLY bad once. she got swiped on the face by a cat, and promptly broke out in hives tip to tail. they were so big and numerous that her hair was sticking up in little spikes all over the place. then she was having trouble breathing when she layed down...

luckily, a quick 50mg dose of benadryl cleared things up enough for her to be comfortable, and 24hrs later (and another dose of benadryl) and she was dam near back to normal.

i guess she's allergic to cats!

well diesel still have the bumps. only a few on his sides and sparaticly on other parts you cant really tell unless the light hits him a certain way.. i havnt changed anything with him and i got him on benadryll and it seems to help.. when we went to the vets he said there not bad at all and should go away but they still havnt. only thing left to do is change his food. but he did great on the first few bags (15lbs) and i just bought a 40lbs bag so i guess im stuck till i can change it.. i did notice a little diffrence when i stopped givin him egg in his food twice a week. but a few still pop up every few days.. like i said its not gettin any worse or better.. :frown:
dont know what else to do. hoping its not grass! pretty tall in the field and he use to run out there to take a number 2. since then ive stoped him from goin back there. but they still didnt go away

Well, she was like that for pretty well just the day. I give her benedryl when she has a hive break out and she's usually better by the next day. She hadn't had them for a bit and was actually doing pretty good. I have no idea what caused this break out. I was trying her on some beneficial bacteria which may have caused it so I took her off for a bit and will try again later. I was hoping the acidophilus would help with her yeast issues. It's a constant battle with poor Bailey. If it's not hives, it's yeast or staff infections, ear infections, chewed up feet, scratching herself raw, etc... She's actually not too bad right now. I don't know how she doesn't turn into a huge crab. She's got to be one of the sweetest and lovabley happiest dogs around. :dunno:

Loki has had hives, get was bitten by a spider, broke out in hives all over, huge, golf ball sized ones.

I tossed his butt into the truck and took him to the vet. His airway was closing up, and he was so swollen up.

2 rounds of some shots, and benedryl, and one day later, they disapeared...

Oh yes; please post pictures of a non-hivey Bailey. She is quite lucky to have you, to tend to all of her skin issues. Sounds like you are very on top of everything.

With regard to the anaphylactic shock symptoms...that scares the crap out of me. V. has never had trouble breathing, but I always get nervous when she has a bad case of hives and when they don't seem to be responding to meds. I'm assuming that that is a possible symptomatic response connected to hives, but obviously not all cases of hives result in breathing problems. Anyone know if the severity of the hives or the length of reaction has anything to do with whether or not the dog will experiece breathing difficulties?

I'd love to show off some non hive Bailey pictures! :))

One of my favorite pictures of her that I want to put on a shirt! lol
Image

Bailey and my daughter Raven cuddlin'. We sadly had to permanently separate these two as Raven's immune system is so shot, with Bailey's constant ear and skin infections, she is actually a health risk to Raven. It really sucks. :sad: Sometimes Raven asks if she can just stand at the baby gate and watch Bailey sleep as she misses her friend. :frown:
Image

And here she is bebarking a log. She later puked the bark up all over her crate and started eating it which sent my son and his friend into a frenzy of hysterical laughter. Nothing like something disgusting to get a couple boys going! lol
