Hives and hot spot on Boxer dog

Hello, everyone just one question for all boxer fans....

My 5 year old boxer got hives all over his body, we took him to vet immediatly but he can`t determine what could cause all these hives on him...We did not change his food, treats, shampoo or anything, we even plucked all weeds and stuff from back yard, but still benadryl did not help, antibiotics did not help either, took him to vet yesterday again and he was surprised that hives did not go away, so he gave him steroids, but as of this morning they are still on there.....So my question is what CURE there is either folk remedy or medicine, or shampoo anything that will help him. Thanks in advance !

i know someone with a different kind of bull dog. The dog has had skin problems for a few years now. Sounds pretty much like you have described. This dog has been to a couple of local vets and they each said the same thing. The dog has some sort of allergies. If i were you i would maybe mention this to your vet. If could possibly be the same thing. This dog i am refering to has to have meds each and every day in order to stay well....Hope this helps....Good luck...BTW is this dog solid white? I have heard vets say that particular types of dogs carry problems as well as white dogs

A lady I know has a small dog that gets those hives and has bad itching till it scratches open its skin. She buys this stuff at the store that is a yellow liquid and it clears him up. nothing the vet gives him works. I'll ask her what it is called. I think walmart sells it and its not expensive.

Really don't know what is wrong with your dog.

But since someone mentioned allergies, I thought I would say there are many things that can effect them in dogs. It could be pollen, fleas, dust mites, food, or something else. It could also be more than one thing.

The treatment of allergies is dogs is also something where one thing could work or any number of things could be used in combination to keep the condition from getting too bad. This could be anything like special food, antihistamines, steroids, antibiotics, special shampoos, and special lotions.

Also the original poster mentioned their dog was a boxer. I know when I was first learning about how to treat my dog for his allergies there was threads on allergies in forums for boxers. So I wouldn't doubt if their dog does have them.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
