Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. If I am not mistaken, you question is if you can give the enrofloxacin and Atarax at the same time, or should they be separated by an hour, correct? If so, then you can give the medications together. Neither should affect the absorption or the metabolism of the other. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
