    ...Uh I don't know what that is supposed to mean but I think this thread should be about baby Mollie.

    But I am getting my chi baby in March! So excited!

    I hope you don't take offence to this BUT it's not just about you apologising.

    I hope you have paid attention to what both Hyacinth and GreysAreGreat have said. It is very important that you do take in this info and learn from it.

    One extra point: When you reply, especially to something like this, be clear, concise and use full sentences. Just saying Vet would set of panic alarms in my head and send me racing to grab shoes, keys, puppy and I would be calling the vet while on my way there.

    Where if you said "It could be just a yeast infection. Get her to the vets tomorrow when they open", it would still mean that I got to the vets ASAP during opening hours BUT I wouldn't panic as much, just make puppy comfortable and keep an eye on her.

    Does that make sense to you?

    Yeah I do understand. I was nowhere near clear enough and I shouldn't be replying to these kinds of questions with second hand knowledge in the first place.
    No offense taken. xox

    Just had a better look at her tummy, etc and IMFG, her tummy is COVERED in small little, rash-like red bumps! This is happening so quickly!
    She is acting normally, mum and dad are asleep!
    The little red bumps sounds like hives and are extremely itchy...trust me...I have seen them MANY times on Sumo. I had to take him to the vets to get a PROPER diagnosis...cortisone injection and some cortisone spray.

    Do you have any wandering dew in the backyard?

    If Demi took Mollie to the EM vets the important cases would go before her. I know this cos it happened when we got Boss there when he ate rat bait.. i felt so bad going in before the ppl that had been sitting there most of the day..

    Demi: i hope the rash isnt that bad.. I dont know much about it

    <Taking deep breaths>
    OMG, what a hectic and nerve-racking night! I only read up to Chi4ever's post and then I had to log out. I COULDNT wake up mum and dad though! The baby had just fallen alseep and they hardly get enough sleep as it is! My darn computer was so SLOW and it wuldnt load the page on yeast infections, so I stayed up late in my bedroom sick with worry!

    When I woke up, the first thing I did was check Mollie's stomach, etc. There was no redness, but the bumps had a little colouration and were still raised, etc. No but-dragging/etc.

    Just got home from school and was able to see all of teh rest of the replies! This has taught me a lesson too - NEVER comment on something in medical/etc I have NO experience in - I spent both the night and day sick with worry. I know you didnt mean to make me worried at all though, Chi4ever!

    Checked Mollie's stomach again and her tummy looks better since this morning too, still slight colouration to the bumps and they are still raised however, questioned mum whom has assured me she watched Mollie like a hawk and Mollie didnt bum-drag at all during the period I was at school.

    I am starting to think more clearly and remembering - all of this didnt occur until I took her outside, put her on the wet grass (had been raining) for her to do a wee - thats when she started but-dragging and the bumps started to occur.

    So an allergy do you think?

    Thanks guys, I feel much better
    I still feel... nervous though. I am gunna talk to mum when she gets home and see what she thinks of it and if she has any time off to take Mollie for a checkup to the vets.

    The Wandering Dew is a good call Dorte. It can be a real problem for dogs. Not only hives and itching, but more serious problems as well!

    Is there anything I can use to help relieve the itching?
    I have no 'itch-free shampoo' or anything (I'll make it a priority to buy some tomorrow!)
    Would a simple bath help? (With no dog shampoo/etc?) Would just a wet flannel help?

    Anything I can do NOW for her, while I have no 'bought stuff' for relieving itching?

    She is scratching her belly alot and I can tell she is very umcomfortable. No bum-dragging BTW since last night.
    Just want some advice before I plonk her in the bath or anything - I dont want to make her itchies worse!

    (Believe me, I am trying to convince mum to take Mollie for a checkup, and to get a proper diagnosis!)
