Customer Question
We have an 8...

We have an 8 month old rescue Pit Bull, he vomited up his food a few days ago then appeared fine. The next day he is covered in what looks like hives with some swelling around his eyes, but none around his mouth. He is now covered in bumps and is itchy. Yesterday he vomited after each time he ate. He is still drinking water.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?

Tigger

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Tigger?

His energy was ok yesterday morning but less as the day went on.

How much does he weigh?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
The lumps are about the same no better or worse. We did try Benadryl with no affect. No difficulty breathing
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
He weighs 60 pounds
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 9 months ago

1- How many milligrams of benadryl did you give and how often?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
We gave 50mg every 8 hrs x 3 then stoped becasue it seemed to have no effect and he was very restless after taking it.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 9 months ago

Friend, the lesions do appear to be consistent with hives which as you already know is an allergic reaction. Benadryl at a dose of 1-2mg per pound body weight every 12 hours is one of the medications we use to treat the reaction. If he did not do well on Benadryl the next step is having him checked by your family veterinarian for a hands-on examination and to start him on corticosteroids.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service. See you again soon!

Could the vomiting be part of an allergy as well?
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 9 months ago

Yes, absolutely.
