They think it was a large red ant that was still attached to his lip

This is in central texas just seems very uncommon for him to go in anaphalaxes with an ant bite
Expert:  Dr Aaron replied 3 months ago.

Uncommon yes...i'd agree with that...but....

I have heard of multiple dogs having an anaphylactic reaction to ant bites. Some of them to the point of near death.

I think this is very reasonable and likely diagnosis.

Expert:  Dr Aaron replied 3 months ago.

Often times where there's one ant bite...there's many more. It's possible only one ant was found but that many were involved.

Expert:  Dr Aaron replied 3 months ago.

Any type of insect/bee sting/wasp sting etc can cause this type of allergic reaction. It can start a significant cascade of events in the body if an individual or dog is allergic. Seizures are definitely a possibility of such a reaction.

Is there anything else I can help you with this afternoon?
