Hi there, I am Dr. Kane, and I will do my best to assist you with your pet today. Please give me a moment to type up a response to your concerns. In the meantime- please take a moment to relay any other pertinent information. Sound good?
Are you able to text here with me now?
That is what I mean, here on the computer :)
Please provide me with Daisy's weight
When did the hives start?
Is she acting normal other than the hives?
OK, got it. You can give her another whole tablet of Benadryl (25 mg) now, and then 2 tablets every 12 hours. If the hives are not going away by tomorrow morning, I recommend getting her seen tomorrow by her veterinarian, they may have to prescribe a steroid medication for the hives. You can go ahead and give her a bath with a gentle (oatmeal based is great) shampoo. Oftentimes, hives are due to an insect bite or sting, or a contact allergen.
I hope this has helped, please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
