thankyou very much,so I rushed off, but was trying to figure out what else to do for Lady, and her paniciing, and my other dog a catahula, mad and tearing a bag up out of the trash because im not paying a lot of attention to him, he, has an attitude, and my husband is out in his radio shack out back and im trying to handle all this by myself,. I gave her the additional 6, with peanutbutter as that is the only way she will take med, and gave Rascal a big spoon ful of peanut butter too, so he doesn't feel
totally ignored, and I also took Ladys collar off to help her breath a little betteras she was scratching like crazy. im going to wash her face and feet with a cool rag to help with the itches.
Lady seems to be doing better, her snout is still swollen, but her tongue and gums are pinkish red, which is expected with an allergic reaction, but she did eat a little bit, and she is resting in our bedroom with the ac where it is cooler and quieter. I took Rascal for a walk so he would chill out. I will continue to watch Lady to make sure she doesn't relapse. if her snout is still swollen in the morning, should I give her more Benadryl?
oh yes ma'am I am it just breaks my heart when my babies are hurting or not feeling well. I don't have children because of medical reasons, so my dogs are like my kids, they act like kids sometimes too LOL, but Thankyou so much for your help. I knew I could give her at least 2 Benadryl but with the way she was acting I didn't know whether to give her more or give her a prednisone. She takes Prednisone occasonaly for seasonal allergies, and so do I for a skin disorder, and she didn't have any, but I had a couple 10 mg tabs. I don't like to give it to her but sometimes that's all that will help. I know your not suppose to give human meds to animals, but if it is necessary I will. anyways thankyou again, and May God Bless You
