Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!So sorry to hear Skittles might have hives! Just to confirm you are doing a 1 mg/ pound dose of benadryl? Do you have any idea what the reaction is to?
If this is a reaction to something ingested or that bit her I would not advise tetracycline. There is no use for it in this scenario and in a young dog it can cause the adult teeth to erupt yellow which is non reversible
I am online another 20 minutes before exiting for the evening and hope you are not having any issues with the site...
I apologize if that is the case, I was able to see "actually I am having troubles..."
You may want to refresh your page to see if that helps?
I can send the question to customer service if you like?
You can double the benadryl if needed but unfortunately if the benadryl is not helping with the baths then the only treatment that will be effective is steroids so you may have to consider a veterinary er visit to get her comfortable
Typically if 1 mg/ pound benadryl hasn't made a difference within 30-60 minutes then steroids are going to be warranted to control her symptoms
Does this information make sense? Please let me know how else I can assist you both this evening...
I will be signing off in just a few more moments...
