    DefaultPoor baby Guthrie.first emergency visit. UPDATED ON Pg 11- Pred effects : (

    Got a call from my mom on my way home from work tonight. She wanted to know if dogs can get hives. She thought Guthrie might have them. Five minutes later she calls to say she thinks his muzzle is getting swollen. By the time I got home i barely recognized my baby. I stuffed 50mg of Benadryl down his throat and loaded him in the truck to take him to the vet. They gave him some IV steroids and some more sub Q Benadryl when we got there. Had to wait around for an hour to make sure he was not getting worse. Has oral prednisone to take tomorrow and Thursday. Have no idea what caused it. Vet thinks he may have gotten bit by something.

    He has been passed our cold in his crate since we got home. My poor baby boy. I attached some pictures I took while we where waiting at the vet.

    Hopefully he will be better tomorrow....it is a special day....he graduations from basic obedience.

    Wow, is that a textbook case of hives or what? Poor Guthrie, he looks miserable. I hope he is feeling better soon.

    Aawww.... poor lumpy Guthrie.

    Peanut got a mild case of the lumpies like that the other week (only on her head) I just gave her children's benedryl (a few doses over the course of a day) and she was good as new.

    I think it was the apple that set her off. I don't think she'd ever had apple, and the lumpies started about half an hour after I gave her a little piece. :-[

    ETA: She got them once before too (had a swollen muzzle just like that), after she had gotten into the bathroom garbage and eaten......umm....."feminine products"......shall we say....:-X
