I just wanted to...

I just wanted to know about Benadryl interaction with Rimadyl. My dog was spayed on Monday and she was given Rimadyl for pain. We wanted to give her something to help calm her down and I have read that Benadryl is safe to use with dogs.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name and age?

Lily and she's 7 months

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Lily?

Aside from the surgery our vet said she was in good health
