Some of you may remember that I posted last week about molly breaking out in hives. I initially thought she was stung by something, but it has been a week and she is stil getting them. She went to the vet 2 times, where they gave her a Benadryl shot, kept her to observe, but ultimately didn't feel like steroids were necessary. She had 1 bad reaction (totally covered in hives and red face-very scary), but Benadryl helped. After that, the vet gave me temaril p and I was about to start it Friday, but she woke up and they were all gone. I thought it was over, but slowly throughout the day some would reappear (maybe 20 total). This happens every day-gone in the morning and then come out after her first walk-so I've narrowed it down to an environmental airborne allergy. The pollen is pretty bad right now, so I feel like I'm on the right track. Ok, my question is should I give the temaril p? I just don't want to pump her full of meds if the hives are just going to come back as soon as she finishes it. I haven't even been giving benadrly for the 20 or so hives shes been getting unless she seems uncomfortable or scratches. I've been managing it by wiping her down after walks, which seems to help, and limiting time outside. I also thought about putting some type of shirt on her when we go out to see if it helps keep pollen off. Any thoughts about starting the medicine or not would be greatly appreciated! sorry for the long message, but I wanted to give all the info!
