Itchy and Scratchy!

I had an allergic reaction to substances unknown last week! At about 8:30 in the evening I started scratching all over and started to swell. Within minutes I was covered in hives, man they itched! I was rushing around the house rubbing myself on anything to alleviate the itching, none of which worked. My family were so worried about me, they took me to the emergency vets. After a short wait and throwing up in the surgery in spectacular fashion I was given an antihistamine injection, I was sent home. After a 30 hours I was back to my normal self. The vet thinks that it might have been an insect bite that set me off. So as the White tips come in out of the cold and settle in warm beds, please check your bedding regularly!
