It sounds like your dog had an allergic reaction to something. If you fed your dog a new food or treat, just shampooed the carpets or used a different shampoo on your dog, that may be the cause. However an allergic reaction can occur as a result of many different things. You can give Benadryl at a dosage of 2 mg per pound every 8 hours. You can read about allergies here:

It will be best if you can try and identify the cause if at all possible. I hope this helps.
