My boxer yesterday had one of his eyes swell up, as well as his cheek, tonight i have noticed both eyes are swollen but not bad. We have given him benedryl every 8 hours and the swelling has gone down. We are taking him to the vet in the morning.

Hi, Really sorry to bother you but i came accross this post whilst trying to find out what happend with my puppy . I have a 15 week old english bulldog named boo. Everything you said happend to her on saturday night and we had to rush her to the emergency vet looking at your photos all of her symptoms where identical. Boo was dischagred 12.00pm sunday only for the same to happen within a few hours. The vet hasnt been able to provide much info at all baisically said it could be a number of things. I would really appreciate it if you could shed any light on to my situationa as anything would be helfull at this point. I am due to pick boo up from the vets after work today and dont want it to happen again . Is there anything that worked for you or anything to avaoid maybe a possible cause for the reaction and has this happend again? Sorry for so many questions I am just really worried and cant seem to find answers anywhere.
Thank you xx

Lucy had a similar thing happen to her a few years ago. She was outside and after he came in, we noticed her shaking her head a lot. In a few minutes her eyes we swollen almost shut, but no hives. We called the vet and he said give her Benadryl liquid and wait awhile. Within about an hour, she was almost normal and by the next day it was like nothing happen. We discovered later she had been stung by a bee and had a reaction to it.
We have to watch her when we take her to new places. She will chase the bees and they don't play well....or is she trying to get revenge?

It's a scary thing when it happens to ur loved one. Baby Dutch had (from what I have read on here thus far) had a mild case of hives but at the time I had no clue what was happening to him. The next day we made a trip to my vet who I love dearly as does Dutch and 2 shots later he was back to normal in a matter of hours! Thankfully, he has not had another outbreak and its been @ 1 month since the incident! I really hope ur baby is doing well now! I'm prepared for next time though thanks to reading all the posts on here!

Default I need advice

May I join?.. Hi I have also question.. Does anybody know about the ImmuneIQ test here? I want to get it for my labrador but would like to hear from someone who purchased it.
I am considering buying the ImmuneIQ test. Found out about it in Animal Wellness magazine article. Thanks for the feedback!

Well I am kind of in the same situation with Jase. Yesterday afternoon, after playing outside he had hives all over his tummy, neck and inner thighs. I wiped him down with warm water and a wash rag, by the time we went to bed he had hives all over and I could feel them through his hair. I gave him 50mg of benadryl and he fell asleep. He wasn't or still hasn't been scratching. This morning he still had them so I called the vet and we can't get in until tomorrow morning, but to call if I notice him struggling to breath, his breathing has been fine. She said to give him 2 more benadryl then, a.m. and 2 more before bed. Now, he has very tiny blisters on his tummy and I also see some on his ears. Today when he went out to poop, 2 times he has had tomato skins in his poop. We are in the country so I'm not sure where he got them. I don't grow them. I have read online that tomatoes are toxic to dogs, is this true? I read a lot of different articles, but none that I read said anything about hives. Could someone give me any more info on tomatoes? Thanks!

Tomatoe plants contain tomatine which is poisonous if enough is ingested. It is found in the green parts of tomatoes (leaves, stem, unripened green tomatoes) As tomatoes ripen, the levels of tomatine decrease making them safe for consumption.
Hives are not a symptom.
Eating the green parts can cause gastro irritation, ataxia (lack of coordination), and weakness.

Thanks, that's what I read. His poop did have red skins in it. A little while ago I was wiping him down again, on the inside of his legs he has hundreds of tiny black dots that I didn't see earlier, but not on his tummy, that I can see. I scraped a small spot and some came off, I think they could be seed ticks, but they aren't moving. He does have topical on but it seems the tick portion always wears off in a couple of weeks, which is where we are now, 2 weeks in. We do reapply every 3 weeks. I wonder if they are seed ticks, could they cause a rash like that? Seed ticks are what we call them in Missouri, they are smaller than a sharp point of a pencil. If they are larger in the morning, I'll know what they are.

I've never heard of seed ticks, so I just looked them up. They are ticks in the nymph stage apparently.
Says a lot of times they can be removed by placing packaging tape over the area and then lifting it off.
You should treat your property as well as the dog.
I recommend food grade diatomacious earth.

I don't think that is possible, we are in the middle of 500 acres of oak trees. lol!
