Allergies with adverse reactions

Hi
Rosie [our red girl] has the "hives" reaction. That would not normally concern me but her skin has gone vivid red. She is being treated with Piriton and itchy spots with Caneasten HC. Usually it dies down within a day or so but it isnt this time.

Any advice anyone, thoughts on the matter?

Sorry, can't help.
Hope Rosie is not in any discomfort. You can feel so helpless when the wee ones are in pain or discomfort.

Re: Allergies with adverse reactions

Are you sure it's hives? Could she have been bitten or anything like that? Other than that I can't help - neither of my girls have ever had hives (apart from Katie jumping in a nettle bed!!).

Would it be worth taking her to the vet to get a larger dose of antihistimine?

Bless her, hope she isn't too itchy!

Or you could try tee tree oil diluted with warm water. I find that helps a heap of skin complaints.
Hope you get it sorted out quickly. Let us know how she gets on

Hi
She has been to the vet, twice in the past 7 days. They just give her a once over and say to continue the treatment. She is on such a high dose of Piriton, it is making her sleepy all the time. Vets say it is a "contact" problem, ie something she is coming into contact with.

Begining to think about a change of vet!

No, definitely not bitten by anything. She is protected on a continual basis by Frontline. It in itself helps animals with skin problems.

I will try tea tree oil, at this point I would try anything!

That is really strange. If the tee tree doens't help, go to another vet. I wwould go to another one anyway!
Good luck. Keep us posted

Re: Allergies with adverse reactions

Hi Helen

I've had a similair problem with Molly coming up wit 5 pence sized lumps all over her neck and back legs (area of the knee). This has happened every time I have taken her for a walk along the near by cycle track - used to be a railway track.

I was really worried at first and was going to take her to the vets in the morning but the lumps had gone - next day, same thing again. I stopped taking her down the track and switched to the park - no lumps - very strange. Was speaking to a neighbour the other day and he has had same problem in the past and it transpires it was to do with the gauze bushes that are on either side of the track in places.

Don't know if you have any near you and if possibly they could be causing / contributing to the problem - unfortunately no wonder cures just thought it may be worth mentioning.

Hope all goes well with Rosie and she is back to full health soon.

Paul

Re: Allergies with adverse reactions

Just a thought - you haven't changed your washing powder or used shake and vac on your carpets or something? I used to come out in hives when my Mum used Shake N Vac, wonder if it affects dogs too??

Poor wee soul. If you are using tea tree on her, add a wee bit of lavender essential oil to it too - that will help calm the skin and is a natural repair oil so will help it heal over too.

Re: Allergies with adverse reactions

Thanks for your advice everyone - I will keep a note of them all.

Decided to try an elimination of things that she gets in her diet first of all. 48 hours after stopping her bio natural yogurt, no hives, no intense itching and her skin is back to a normal colour and she is a happy Boxer bunny again!

She was getting the bio yog for a reason and it was good, controlled that little problem well but obviously not agreeing with her, so no more! Thank goodness as it was reallty begining to get to and annoy me as I couldnt do anything to help her, or so I thought!

You should maybe move house or prey to a different god or something, sorry but it seems to be very unlucky for your babies as it is. How are you getting on yer self by the way?
