Please provide me with Daisy's weight

When did the hives start?

Is she acting normal other than the hives?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Daisy is 37 lbs. at last visit with her vet which was about 3 weeks ago the hives started this afternoon and she is acting normal except they seem to be itching her
Expert:  Rebekah Kane replied 1 year ago.

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.
