So Macy May has facial swelling and hives for no known reason. She is not agitated, and ate her normal dinner, and is in no distress. I gave her 3 benedryl and am watching her. This happened in July, I woke to her with an extremely swollen muzzle, she looked like Pluto (the Disney character, not the planet). I freaked out, and brought her to evet, even though she was in no distress. They gave her steroids (I had given her benedryl) and sent her home. I don't think the steroids did much because over the next 2 days she continued to be covered in hives all over her body. Her face eventually deflated, but her body became covered and she was obviously very itchy. Given this history, do you think I need to get her in for steroids? I'd actually like to give her some of the steroids that I have on hand (methylprednisone). If this was the first time is happened, I'd be completely panic stricken afraid of anaphylaxis. But she's laying here completely comfortable and snoozing away. She's actually much less swollen than he last time, but like then, we have no idea what caused this. So I'm less worried, but I can see new hives popping up about 15 minutes after I gave the benedryl. Help?
