Yesterday when I got home from work, I noticed that Laila had bumps all over her. We have been threw this one time before with Trinidad. It is an allergic reaction. It's very hard to determine what causes these reactions, it would be seasonal allergies like you are I get, it could be a bug bite, poison Ivy. We gave Laila Benedryl, and have been watching her. The Hives come and go. She slept with us last night, and it made for a long night. Alex is still upset from the funeral of his Puffer Fish, so he was alittle over dramatic last night. He said, "mom, I can't imagine every having another Dog as good as Laila. " When this happened to Trinidad, we had to rush him to the hospital, because his head has swollen up, and he had to have Bendryl and Steroid injections. We are keeping a close eye on Laila, and hope it will run it's course, and not have to take her to the Vet. You can see the bumps on her skin. Her skin is normally very smooth. We have to watch her to make sure she doesn't swell up, and that her airway doesn't close up.
