|Look how big his poor little nose and mouth is.|
|Within about 30 minutes he looked like this and had started to whimper. I was really starting to get scared and had no idea what had happened. He had been with me the entire time so I know he didn't eat anything.|
|Then all of a sudden these started showing up... After some thinking, I realized that this must be what hives looks like in Dogs. I had already call my vet and was awaiting a call back.|
|I sat down with him in between patients and he just sat in my lap. The poor thing obviously did not feel well.|
|I took him over to my nurse and asked her to keep him at her desk in case he had any sort of problems while I was in with patients. I called my hubby and asked him to come get him.|
|By the time I got home that night the poor guy looked like this!!!! I was able to reach one of our leaders and when I showed her the picture she calmly said..."oh, he has coccidia. This is a bacteria that causes diarrhea in most dogs.|
Coccida?!?!?! Why on earth would my puppy have hives all over from Coccida??? Our wonderful leader Sarah explained that it is a strange thing in GDB puppies that they get hives when they get it. He had yet to have any diarrhea. SO STRANGE!!!
|Here you can see the hives as seen in is fur on his sides. At this point he still has not had any diarrhea.|
