Thanks for your good thoughts, everybody. We are home, and he is more comfortable. He did get a steroid shot to tame the hives; and he will be on an antibiotic in the hopes that the coat and skin issues we have had are bacterial. Later tonight he will get an oatmeal bath. This is definitely the worst case of hives I have seen, they are all over his body, and even his eyelids and muzzle have some swelling.
Some of you may recall that we have been battling skin sensitivity for awhile, and I have been messing around with his food, and laundry…now I am thinking about an air-purifier. He obvioulsy has some sort of allergy, and I don't *think it is food related. I would love to hear if anybody has tried some homeopathic allergy treatments.
Thanks for all your thoughts
