Hmmm... this was strange. Early this morning Mrs. S went for a walk today down by the lake and the dogs (Zeus and Lola) were playing in the water and having a good time. No harm right.....
Well at around 11:00hrs we noticed that Zeus (our biggest dog 80 lbs) had hundreds of raised bumps on his skin that were very noticable. But the little dog was not affected at all.
We quickly gave him a bath and he was in good spirits and seemed to be fine. But we saw that it seemed that he was covered with a strange raised rash.
By 12:45 hours his muzzle area was severly swollen...
You could see in his eyes he wasnt feeling well..
We were about to load him in the truck and make a run to a Vet to see what the heck.... Mrs. S took a photo and called our Vet we normally use and he looked at the photo and told us to give him two Benadryl spaced out an hour between each dose and call him back 50 minutes after the last dose was taken and give him an update.....
Well I just so happened to have some on hand so we done as instructed and watched him very closely.
After the 50 minutes was up after the second dose we were able to report that ALL of the bumps from the rash were gone and the swelling in his face was going down rapidly.
He told us while we are traveling to always keep Benadryl on hand for him and keep childrens Benadryl on hand for the smaller dog.
Good thing it worked becasue now it is storming outside and we would have been out trying to get to the Vet in this storm.
I just wanted to share this information with you because I know that many of you are like us and travel with your four legged friends.
Might help you out one day. Some of you probably already no this but there might be a newbie out there and this might help them out.
Were all good now, piled up watching a movie and listening to the rain ping on the Airstream....
