I thought he was all better, but I woke up to the sound of intense scratching at 5, called him over to my side of the bed, felt his head and dang it, the welts were back. Benedryl again has it under control, but I am getting really worried. And I hate having him zoned out on Benedryl, poor baby!
I went out and looked at his poops this morning and I think he's been eating tomatoes off the vine - maybe that's it. I'll harvest everything today then block them off I guess.
My plan is to try and manage it today then take him to our regular vet on Monday.
Poor guy! I hope he's feeling better soon. :-\
Oh my gosh! What in the world?
I'm thinking no on a bug bite now. Not unless the bug happened to bite him again. Whatever it is, he was exposed to it a second time. That's my guess. If you get a reaction under control with Benadryl, it wouldn't return 24 hours (or whatever) later. :-\
Not sure about the tomatoes. I guess it's possible...but as far as I know, they are not really a known allergen, for people anyway. ??? But anything could happen, I guess.
I sure hope you can figure it out! Poor baby!

So sorry the welts are back. Do you have anything else growing that he might be snacking on that could cause all the bumps? Hope you can get to the bottom of it. Keep us updated.

It might not be the tomatoes he ate, but the actual vines if he is getting into them. . . not eating, but touching. I break out and itch when I pick our tomatoes!! Lots of luck. . . I hope Stoops gets to feeling better.
Oh no poor boy! Sending lots of good thoughts for a speedy recovery.
