Mood Now: Dazzled

Allergic reactions

Hi All
Had a bit of alarm last week. Gave the girls a a new kind of chew treat. Watched carefully to make sure they didnt swallow them whole as dogs are apt to try and do. About an hour later Rosie came up in hives, yes, it was that quick. Gave her antihistamines, anti itch spray and tablet to cover her tummy in case it was upset. Next day as soon as the antihistamines wore off the hives were back as bad as ever and that night her glands and throat swelled. So we had to visit the vet for a steroid injectiion which is fast acting.

Vet explained that dog chews along with other dog treats are soaked in fat, fast dried, then soaked in fat again - this makes them highly palatable to dogs. We think it was the "fat" she was allergic to.

I certainly wont repeat these "treats".

What were they called Helen, so we can avoid them??

Hope Rosie is better now, nothing worse when it happens so quickly like that!
