She is currently eating Taste of the Wild dog food. The only thing I can think of was that the hives were stress related, as we were away from home and she in her kennel for several hours. The hives have completely subsided...just waiting the 45 days she is to be on Ivomec to see if her condition improves. If not, I am going to try gentian violet, as mentioned in an earlier post regarding staph infections. Fingers crossed and praying she gets better!
