Default My dog has something going on-bumps all over!

Called vet and said to give 50mg Benedryl, so did that about 30min ago. Looks like allergy, nothing here has changed, so kind of weird. Thought I would put some pics and see what everyone thinks.

Had a bulldog that would get similar. Allergies. 1 mg of benadryl per pound.

Bully breed & live in the south?

mine has them right now too, itís something seasonal, mine gets them a couple times a year in Florida but got them in the NE too when I lived there, just not as frequently.

I canít tell you what they are but the Benadryl wonít touch it. It will make the dog sleep more & tear them up less though.

the only thing I have found that really works is cortisone shots but the vets here look at me like Iíve asked them to kick kittens when I ask them to give him a shot.

He sleeps in our bed. I thought about anything new that might cause and canít think of anything. Hopefully the benedryl gets it under control. If it clears up I will give him a good bath later.

Any new toys or treats? Anything different at all? Take those away/out of environment. We've seen reactions to both toys and treats.

They look the same? Very odd.

Looks like acute allergic reaction to "something"--contact, bug bite-??
Benadryl may help--as stated above 1 mg/lb--can repeat it in about 6 hours.
Also-as stated above--some require cortisone pills or injection to calm the immune system's over reaction--give the Benadryl a little time and if no improvement noted then get to DVM before they close and you have to go to emergency clinic.

whatever causes it is outside, not in your home.
pay close attention when you take the dog out, they appear almost instantly.

vet said the only way to find the exact source is an allergy panel where they test the dog for every possibly allergy in the world until they narrow it down to what it is.

they also try to scrape a sample of raw skin to check for mange, which it isnít (or hasnít been any of the dozen times they insisted on checking.

Yellow jackets and a large wasp nest will do that.

My old hound use to hunt the big wasp nests and look just like that. Would last about 24 hrs.

Take them to the vet. Could be wolves (screw worms). Our farm dogs would get them occasionally. We also had a border collie one time that we thought had wolves. It turned out to be an infection of the lymph nodes (fatal).

Same bumps on mine were from yellow jackets. Mine was covered from one end to the other.
