Q. My dog just started getting whelps all over. She has had some diarrhea this weekend and I gave her some pumpkin last night.
DR. JENNIFER LADD, DVM
A. It sounds as though your dog has several things going on which may or may not be related. First and foremost it sounds like your dog is having an allergic reaction and it would be prudent to give her some Benadryl. That goes for better drill is 1 mg per pound of body. So a 25 pound dog would get 25 mg twice daily. Allergic reaction and also cause gastric acid in the stomach to increase so sometimes G.I. Symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea our present with allergic reactions. If the diarrhea is not needed it could be a number of things. I would recommend submitting a fecal exam to your veterinarian to rule out parasites and bacterial overload
