Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Not sure on bumps. She went to grommet Saturday morning and I didn't see her again until Sunday afternoon. She is 57 lbs. No pre existing . She has gone to groomer before and had a reaction but since has changed to a sensitive skin oatmeal bath with several baths since the switch.

Friend, I am sorry you are going through this with Ruby. In response to your question, if the bumps appear like welts you are right to suspect that she is having an allergic reaction either to something she came in contact or she ate. I would recommend you start her on Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 25mg 3 tablets (75mg) every 12 hours for the next 3-5 days. If she is not better by tomorrow I would have her checked by your family vet, she may need additional medication. You can buy benadryl over the counter in any pharmacy.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done. Dr. Peter
