Hi Jacustomer,

My name is ***** ***** I’ve been involved professionally with dogs in the health and behavioral fields for over 18 years. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.

It sounds like she may be having an allergic reaction to something. Perhaps the shampoo you used or a new treat of food item. Allergies in dogs are much like humans and can be environmental such as pollens, air fresheners, detergents, cleaning supplies, etc. You can read about these below.

Benadryl may help with the allergic reaction. The dosage is 1-2mg per pound every 8 hours.

Try and identify what may have changed so she isn't exposed to the allergen in the future.

I hope this information is helpful to you.
