Customer Question
I have a 3...

I have a 3 year old American Bulldog who has allergies. We have been doing great avoiding causes but about 3 hours ago I noticed welts on her body. About 15-20 minutes later her eyes were swelling. I immediately gave her 4 Benadryl.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?

Hope

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Hope?

Not that I can think of other than I just fenced in an area for them. Her and my Alapaha were digging in a new spot before this happened. I also found that she had chewed up some pieces of a Nerf football.

I am sorry to hear your dog has these welts which sound like an allergic reaction to something in her environment or that she ingested. I can give you some basic guidelines but if there is no change please consider a veterinary exam to administer injectable steroids and control the symptoms

- To confirm the Benadryl dose of 1 mg/ pound which may cause mild sedation initially. If there is no change within the hour please consider the er but if it is helping repeat in two hours and then every 4 hours overnight. Tomorrow continue every 6-8 hours to minimize risk of relapse
- If needed an Oatmeal-based dog shampoo with cool water and with ten minutes contact time before rinsing. This will help to soothe the skin and provide relief

I hope this information makes sense and gives you a starting point for how to control these symptoms. Please let me know how else I can assist you both this evening
