Boston Terrier Suddenly has Welts
Please help me. I know that Bostons are prone to allergies, but my pup has these large welts all over him. He is fine and eating well just really itchy. I have not changed his food or any of his treats. He was fine until Saturday when he got them for the first time. I thought he may have sat in ants and took him to the vet. She gave him a shot of steroids, benadryl, and fluids under his skin. Thought all was well as they disappeared completely, until they develpoed again last night. I have given him benadryl once a day to help with the itch and put him in a shirt so if he scratches he wont tear up his skin. He goes back to the vet on Saturday. I am worried that this may be life long as I have read this often with Bostons. I want to take a hollistic approach and have read long term benadryl use can cause liver issues. Any help will be appreciated.
