Hello! This is my first post on here and I wish it could be a bit more positive but here goes!
Our 3 year old female pitbull has a history of hives. She has gotten them all over her body multiple times and after many vet visits we were told to switch her food because it could be the grain or chicken. She has been on Blue Buffalo for months now. She has been perfectly fine.
We know she has allergies from something outside in summer time but she hasn't been outside much and its still pretty cold here (Utah).
We went to bed last night as per usual, the only difference being she didn't want her nighttime potty trip so she just hopped in bed and went to sleep. She does sleep in our bed with us, under the covers but nothing at all has changed with what we wear or the detergent. Her food is the same and she didn't get out of bed to get bit by something.
Her hives are almost causing her eyes to be swollen shut, she has huge ones in front of her ears, her legs are slowly getting more and more and they are getting bigger.
I don't know if this is significant but she is currently recovering from her second TPLO surgery. Her first leg healed great and we are almost a month away from being back to full activity from the second. The actual surgery was almost 3 months ago so I don't feel like it is the metal plates or screws but I obviously don't know.
We will be taking her to the vet when they open although my assumption is she will get a steroid shot and we will be told to keep her on Benadryl. I'm not against this as I just want her to be happy and healthy however I feel like I should be doing more to prevent it. I don't like it happening at all so I am just looking for advice from anyone who may have experience with it! Thanks in advanced!
