My dog isn't herself at the moment, she's been stratching alot, so we've given her flee treatment and wormed her, but she is off her food, still straching though not as much as before, she's appears very uncomfortable and sometimes jumps up crying, but then settles again.
Type of Animal: husky

Good Morning and welcome to Just answer. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
It appears to me that Shelby is suffering from an allergic reaction probably to the fleas. the best thing to do for Shelby is to give her Benadryl at 1 mg per pound every 12 hrs This will ease her discomfort.When she is feeling better and more comfortable, then she will get back to her old self. If this is not enough, your vet has stronger medications to help Shelby past this....does that make sense to you?
ok thank you
Good for you! I really think Shelby will feel a lot better with this over the counter medication.
