My 5 month old boxer woke up this morning covered in hives. I quickly did an online search to see if she could have some benedryl to calm the hives. I came across this site from a google search. Is it some strange co-incidence that yesterday I bathed her in Hartz flea and tick shampoo? I just don’t know! But after reading some of the stories, I am very suspicious that the shampoo is the culprit.
I have bathed her in clear water this morning, given her a teaspoon of benedryl, and she is sleeping in a sunny spot on the floor. I will certainly never use the shampoo again.
