Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
I would personally speak with Bella's vet before going through with the adoption. If she is truly allergic to another dog's saliva, it would be the first time I had ever heard of it happening. We typically see allergies to food sources and environmental factors like plants, trees, grasses, etc. If she does have allergies, this needs to be addressed medically and Benadryl may not be the fix. It would be worthwhile to sit down with the vet and discuss what's been done medically and what options exist for treatment in the future. If these are allergies, they may be chronic problem for her and you'll need to be aware of what treatment consists of. Giving Benadryl daily should be simple, but if she worsens are you willing to visit a dermatologist regularly? Perform allergy shots at home? These should all be considerations before adoption. So long as your conversation goes well, I don't think there's any reason both dogs could not be adopted together into your home.
