Hello again everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful 4th, Canada Day, and any other holiday that was celebrated in the near past!! Well I just went through quite a thing with my Buffy dog and food allergies!! Thursday evening her eyes and nose started swelling up so I rushed her to the vet and we all just assumed that she had gotten a spider bite or something, so the vet gave her a steroids shot and a benedryl shot and she seemed to be doing better. Then on Saturday morning Buffy started thowing up and having diareah (sp) and I noticed that the inside of her ears were all broken out and she was itching them like crazy and she was swallowing funny like her throat itched. Thats when I started to think about what she had been eating and remembered that I had gotten her dog food on Wednesday. I had gotten her the same brand as always but a different flavor ( bought chicken and rice because they were out of lamb and rice). So I took away her food and decided to scramble her a couple of eggs as a treat because she was feeling so yucky. BAD IDEA!!! I never thought about chicken and eggs being the same and causing a reaction, so my poor baby broke out in hives all over her body!!!!! I then rushed her to the emergency vet (being a holiday weekend my vet was out of the office). They told me to give her benedryl and she would get better. So now I have gotten her the food that she was eating before (lamb and rice) and she is doing better. The inside of her ears is still a bit itchy and scaby but I know that she will be ok now. Has anyone else ever had this reaction with their dogs with chicken?? I always thought that chicked was one of the easiest things for them to digest. This whole thing gave me quite a scare and I just wanted others to be aware of what food alergies can do!!
