Hello,

I’m Dr. Jenn and I’m a licensed veterinarian with 18 years of experience. I’m here to help with your question about Paco. I love Chihuahuas! I have 2 myself. ;)

I’m so sorry you’re having this problem, but glad you’re looking for the information you need. You may join the conversation at any time by typing in what you want to say then clicking REPLY or SEND. Then we can chat back and forth until you’re satisfied with the information I’ve provided. I’ll do my best to ear your good rating, because that’s the only way I receive any compensation for helping you.

It is okay to give Prednisone and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at the same time. We often do that with dogs that have allergies. You mention Paco doesn't have a lot of energy. Is this new? Associated with the nasal discharge? Is he improving with the medications?

We have a Yorkie Chihuahua cross. She is 7 years old. Was diagnosed with PRA last year. She is almost completely blind. 1 September she got an ear infection and the Vet gave antibiotics which did'Nt help. Took het back to the Vet and then they started a 2 week Cotisone treatment. She was much better but her tummy was very bloated. Took her back to Vet - x -rays showed that her liver had problems. She stopped the cortisone and gave us Heptonic, Bio Vit and Probiotic to give to her for two weeks. Also did some blood work, which showed the liver had damage. The liver count was over 700... From yesterday she is ill again. Taking her back to the Vet for the 8th time from 1 September! She is totally off balance and sleeps most of the day. She eats and drinks normally and bathroom things also in order. Please help. We are frustrated and don' t want her to suffer. Any suggestions? … read more
