Last night when I went to check on Shyla before bed, I noticed that she had a few hives on her head, snout and quite a few on her ears. It scared me to death as I don't know what she could have had a reaction to. She was perfectly fine when I had brought her in an hour before. I gave her half a Benedryl (as I had heard you could give that to your dog but did not know how much!). She was acting fine and was begging for treats and wanted to play. I settled her down and went to bed. I got up around 2:30 in the morning and checked on her and the hives only remained on her ears. This morning her ears felt a bit thick and she was shaking her head a bit. I gave her a bath and gave her another benedryl before I left for work. Again, she was acting totally normal and in great spirits. I can't imagine what she could have gotten into!! Anyway, as I was telling my mother about it this morning she mentioned to watch out for a hematoma on the ears and that it would have to be opened and drained by a vet if it happens. Now I am very worried. I would have taken her straight away to the vet this morning if I thought that she was in pain or was not acting the same but she was fine and I had a very important meeting with clients this morning (which I would have missed if I felt she needed me to!). If anyone could offer any info on hematomas in the ears, I would greatly appreciate it. I will be worrying all day until I can check on her again. Thanks!
