Thanks for all of your help. Zeus seems to be just fine now, the hives are completely gone. When I took him to the vet on Tuesday the doc said that there is no way of knowing for sure what caused the hives. He said he did not think that the household cleaners would cause that type of reaction. He said he has never seen that happen before (and he is pretty old, HA) his money was on some kind of bite/sting, especially with his eye swelling like it did. He said that I had done everything correctly and that the Benadryl was smart. He was looking wo much better that the vet didn't feel the need to give him a prednisone shot and he didn't even charge us for the office visit
. Thanks again for you help.
