So last night i had to take Kaiser to the emergency clinic.

Here's what happened. Last night i noticed him trying to scratch his nose by rubbing it on furniture, his paws, etc. But i only noticed one bump on his nose at the time. I thought maybe he had been bitten by and insect of some sort, even though I didn't see any initial bite. So i gave him two benadryl tablets (25mg a piece).

As the night went on I noticed it got worse and worse, to the point where his eyes were really swollen and hives were appearing all over his body. So i took him to the emergency vet where (I think) they gave him a steroid shot and something else to calm the swelling (this was about 3 a.m.)

He is doing better as of now, and the swelling is clearing up but I have no idea what could have done it. I've tried feeling around his body to see if I could find any signs of a bite, but nothing.

Any idea of what could have set it off? His eating patterns haven't changed at all.

Thanks for any help in advance.

spider, mosquito, wasp, bee, not sure! but a few of my young dogs were allergic when young but grew 'out of it' after puberty! Prednisone worked wonders.
