Twice since December, my Great Dane has had a few bumps on her head (at first look, I thought they were insect bites) that itch her & end up bleeding and oozing pus. Both times, I took her to the vet, where she received antihistamine shots in each hip, a prescription for Cipro, and I was instructed to put her on Benadryl. For a day or 2 afterwards, she wore en E-collar, and the swelling diminished, and all was fine. The vet ruled out a bite because of the quick healing...we thought all was okay...Until yesterday when they flared up again!
However, I am wondering if it is an allergy, and if so, to what? It only appears around her eyes or on her head - no where else on her body! We live in Houston, Texas. Any ideas?
Your scientific/deductive reasoning is much appreciated! Any advice is welcome!
This could be hives caused from an allergy. your guess is as good as mine to what she is allergic too. It can be anything in the enviroment. I recommend a re-check at the vet. vetcare
