Lola broke out in hives today
I have no idea what caused them. We were leaving the dog park and she kept rolling around on the ground like something was biting her or she was itchy. Her face especially. Then she kept shaking her head.
We got in the car and she kept rubbing her face on the seat, then crawled on me, then down on the floor in front of the driver's seat. I pulled over - it was really dangerous with her down there amongst my feet and the pedals.
I went straight to the emergency clinic, and the vet showed me that her ears were red too. They examined her and could find no infection, so assumed allergic reaction to something. A steroid shot and a benadryl shot and she quickly got better.
Earlier I noticed her hair raised up all over her head, like when you get goosebumps only bigger. Little round raised areas. Her face and head looked funny, almost blotchy, with that bumpy look, so I think those were hives. Unfortunately I can't pinpoint anything. I think I might have seen them before we went to the dog park. But why would they go away, then come back?
