    Default :::sigh::: a few hives are back

    Penny had the steroid shot this morning for hives, swollen eye, and tongue. The hives went away. I gave her the next dose around 8:30 & she had a few hives popping back up on her legs about 10 mins ago. I just want her to clear up!!

    I may have to call back to the vet in the morning. Has anyone given benadryl on top of prednisone? I feel like the prednisone should kick this, though.

    No sorry, I have only had to use Benydrel for Blossom, and I don't know if you can mix the two. The only thing I can suggest is you could ask your vet. If they're not open, they probably have an emergency number. The other thing you can do is call your pharmacist , they are very knowledgable when it comes to medicines, and can tell you if they can be mixed or not. They are both medicines that people take, and most of the time if its safe for us, then it's usually safe for dogs too. But it's always best to ask first just to be safe. Hope she feels better soon, and that you can figure out what's causing the hives.

    YES, even our vet told me I could. Vegas suffers from multiple allergies 98% environmental. Within the last 6 months he has pulled his leg muscle twice and had to get shots of prednisone and I ask since his other allergies were so bad if I could still give benadryl. The steroid will help a lot with the hives, but it is OK to give the Benadryl as well. 25 mg. per 25 lbs. You might want to wait until later today to see if the prednisone kicks it though.
