Sudden, Severe, Itching
Suddenly, starting last night, Shiloh has started itching almost uncontrollably. She can barely walk from one side of the room to the other without stopping to itch. Sometimes she falls over trying to itch and walk at the same time. She is leaving small tufts of hair all over.
I have done nothing particularly out of the ordinary in the last few days.
Saturday we went to the dog park, and it was mostly the usual dogs there.
Stopped for lunch at a hot dog stand, and apparently dogs eat free, so I spoiled her and let her have a plain hot dog.
Sunday was a nice day, so I took her for a long walk, wandering around aimlessly around the apartment complex.
I then got a cold, and bought tissues with lotion in them.
I gave her Benadryl (which has helped some) at direction of my veterinarian, and have an appointment tomorrow, but was looking for any ideas of possible causes for this sudden itchy outbreak.
Maybe the lotion in the tissues? The hotdog? Fleas? She's treated with Advantix.
