My boyfriend's pibble, Ginger, was stung or bit by something under her chin 4 days ago. Her face was swollen (she looked like a Bull Terrier, poor girl) and she developed hives. She weighs 46lbs but since her face was swollen too I gave her three 25mg capsules for the first dose. After an hour her face looked 75% back to normal and the hives were less visible. I stayed home to watch her and make sure she didn't develop any breathing issues.
It's been 4 days and she still has hives. We've been giving her 50mg (two 25mg capsules) every 8 hours. The face swelling went down and never came back. However, in the mornings and evenings she seems like she's not feeling too great. How long does it normally take for a dog to recover from something like this? Is it vet time?
Thanks so much!
