Back with another issue. Baako is 6 months now and ever since spring has started, we've had a really hard time with allergies.
From sneezing and eye discharge, to now hives all over the body (depends on how much he scratches). We were at the seaside a week ago and we noticed he had his upper lip swollen. We took him to the vet, they gave him a corticosteroid shot and he was fine 1h later. Then, at night, ha started developing hives (he was restless and agresively scratching). We had some Aerius (desloratadine) at hand so we gave him 1/4 of that which did the job in 30 mins. It lasted him until the next morning, when the hives were back. We took him to the vet when we got back home and he said that is likely an enviromental allergy and that we should continue with 1/4 Aerius for 10 days.
We are 7 days in now and I see no improvement, they reapear after roughly 24 hours.
I just don't know where to start. I have already cut out all the treats (we've intorduced beef jerky lately, thought it could be it) but it didn't change anything. I can't keep him inside for days just to rule out enviromental allergies either. Not to mention that when we came back from the seaside, I've found a flea (weird enough) on one of the blankets (although it was not used on him). I looked all over him but couldn't find any signs of bites.
I know that it is hard to tell what could cause it, so I was wondering whether any of you had to deal with something similar on the body. He seems fine otherwise, energic and all.
