My dog has broken into mini hives across his body. His vet has shaved off his hair and told us to put coconut oil, but the hives are not getting better, rather aggravated. If he gets wet I have to immediately dry him. What is the problem?


Sudden development of hives with pain could be sting bite, allergies or inflammation from several causes. Hives without any pain could be common problems like Lipoma or other non-inflammatory lumps. Get him examined by your vet ASAP. Use moistening shampoo and feed balanced pet food to keep skin and hair
