    Default Allergic reaction! Anyone had any side effects from Ranceph antibiotics?

    I got so scared this morning when I did the "morning checkup" on Bennie He had like swollen spots on his chest, under his front legs and some bumps on the rest of his body too. And a huge swollen spot on the skin hanging under his chin.

    Threw him in the car and took him to nearest proper vet which is about 45 minutes from here. Luckily it's nothing serious, the vet thinks he just got a reaction to the wet weather we've had lately combined with some tick bites he's had over the last week. We've also tried to switch him to a better food, but he just can't eat anything else that what we used to feed him. He throws up and/or gets itchy from all other foods we've tried... I'm thinking the food switch can have had a part in this too even though he's back on his normal food again. Maybe his immune system got a bit low from it all

    So he got a cortisone shot and Ranceph antibiotics... I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with Ranceph? Bennie is so sensitive, poor guy

    We also got them all Virbac tick collar to keep the ticks off them completely. We don't have heartworm here and I've not seen any fleas, so I never really felt it was necessary to give them anything against it. I've been feeling a bit hesitant against giving them pills or putting stuff on them... but I feel bad now for not doing it Ticks hasn't been a problem before but where we live now there are lots of cats roaming around, I think they bring it into our yard

    Have to give him his first antibiotic pill now... hoping he will feel better soon, my little boy<3

    So sorry Petra. Hope he feels better soon. Ranceph is Cephalaxin, which is a drug that I just had for my Great Pyrenees. She did not have any ill effects from it, but, as you know every one is different. I hope all goes well and Bennie feels like himself quickly!

    Awe poor sweet Bennie! With what he was prescribed he should feel better in no time. So many bullies have an allergic reaction to springtime, too.

    Thank you guys It has now been about 6 hours since he got his shot and antibiotic pill... the bumps are already gone He seems a bit depressed about the tick collar though but I think he'll get over it once he gets used to it... it does smell A LOT of mint, the whole house smells like a toothpaste factory He doesn't seem to have any bad reaction to the antibiotic or the collar, which is a relief, I always stress giving them new things, especially Bennie cos he's so sensitive to everything.

    When ever I put a new flea collar on my dogs, they act like I've tried to kill them. They roll around and then go lay down and sulk for an hour. All the dogs I've ever had have done the same thing! Drama queens!

    Lol, that's funny Bennie doesn't try to get it off at least, he's just been laying in one spot looking sad. He got happy just now when my husband got back from work, so I'm hoping he'll get back to his normal self again now
