Well, at first it was just by the butt, which was not a big concern. Then, Zoe was scratching her face a lot and going into her little dog house and laying down which she never does for more than like 5 seconds. She kept jumping up on me but wouldn't stay long and then run around again. After a bit, I noticed her snout was very swollen. I showed my bf and he agreed and noticed some hives and that her ears were red inside. I called the ER vet and we went right over. They gave her a steroid and benadryl and her fever was 105.5. After a little while the fever went down and the swelling has started to go down too. The hives are gone too. I have to give her benadryl for 2 days and prednisone for 2 days and next time I have to vaccinate her (in 3 yrs.), they said to give her benedryl shot in advance.
I must say, the ER ppl. were very friendly and very helpful. They liked Zoe a lot too
. My bill there was $166... much better than I expected considering her regular vet bill today was $155!
