I know no one can answer this with a DEFINITE answer, but I would like to get some opinions.

Yesterday night and this morning I gave both my dogs some raw chicken quarters. Well, Killian now has a bunch of bumps all over his back. They're mosquito bite-sized. They aren't red, and don't have any discharge but he seems more itchy.

His food also has chicken meal in it, but I was wondering if the raw could be causing worse problems for him?

I've had a lot of dogs with allergies, and I can't say I've ever seen that. I wonder if he actually did get into a mosquito (or other bug) nest. I guess all you can do is wait a while and try again. . .and if it happens again you'll have your answer. For now, if he's itchy you can give him a Benedryl, 1 mg per pound.

He has been inside all day, except for potty breaks because of the bumps, and he is never outside alone, so no bugs for him. I gave him 1, 25mg Benedryl, which is less than the 1mg per pound, but I want to see if it even helps at all, first.

Thank you for the reply! =]

I highly doubt it was the chicken quarters. Most dogs that have a chicken allergy are fine on raw chicken. Duke got hives when he was a puppy and they sound like what your pup might have. Hives are most often an outside allergy reaction. Duke got them after he went through brush on a hike. Could you think of anything he might've done like that?

It could be the chicken if it was enhanced. Check on the back label, the sodium should be less than 100mg per 4oz serving.

He hasn't walked anywhere that we normally don't. Can dogs get hive from stress like humans? I can't think of any reason he would be stressed, either but I suppose that it could be the issue.

It's 75mg per 4oz serving. My other dog doesn't have any of the spots, either so I am guessing it's an allergy to something.

You might want to try soaking the chicken and rinsing it before you feed it. You want less than 100 mg per 4 oz, but some dogs can't take any enhancement.
