My dog 13lbs has been on on 480 mg of "msg" antibiotics sin

Customer Question

My dog 13lbs has been on on 480 mg of "msg" antibiotics since 5/28/15 for what diagnosed as a tick infection. She is now suffering from itching, fever and very bright pink colored skin. She feels hot. I gave her a cool bath to bring down her temp. Can I give her benadryl or aspirin to relieve the fever and itching?

Hello and thank you for asking your question. My name is***** will try to help. Can you tel me the name of the antibiotic she is on?
Is she on the antibiotic for Lyme disease or a skin infection? Do you have a thermometer you could use to take her temperature? Her skin may feel hot, if it is inflamed, but she may not be hot internally.
