Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
I am sorry to hear you are worried about Sonnit. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
You can give meloxicam, antibiotics and Benedryl together if that is what you are asking. How much does Sonnit weigh? The dose of Benadryl is 1 mg per pound of body weight, so 25 mg for a 25 pound dog, every 4 to 12 hours.
If her gums are pink, if she can swallow food and water, if she can breathe with her mouth closed, she sounds like she is not in immediate danger.
Let me know what else I can answer or help with.
Red is better than pale.
Big dog! I would give 100 to 125 mg of Benadryl every 4 to 6 hours until the swelling goes down.
