    Default Joey is prescribed Synulox (antibiotic) & Prednisone (cortisone) for skin issues along with Revoution flea treatment.

    Joey's skin issues started about a week ago... the vet thinks it might be a reaction to flea or tick bite, so I got Revolution spot on flea treatment for her which I put on her on Wednesday, the vet didn't have time to see Joey then but I had an appointment with the vet yesterday (Thursday) so she could look at Joey's skin. She prescribed her Synolux antibiotic for 5 days AND Prednisone cortisone for 9 days. I gave her the cortisone yesterday and I'm supposed to start her on the antibiotics this morning. I'm now stressed as she got Revolution on Wednesday and now she must also get both cortisone and antibiotics

    Do you guys think it will be OK? I know these are common medicines and I haven't found anything on the internet that suggests there could be an issue but I want to make absolute SURE as Joey is a senior and she's not the fittest bulldog around

    The vet checked her over and told me she's in good condition for her age, she didn't think she would turn 8 later this year, I'm was very relieved to hear that

    Revolution is topical, right?
    I think it should be fine, especially since it's two days later.

    Poor Joey but hey, it'll make her feel much better.

    I'm so sorry to hear about Joey I've never heard of the flea treatment, but I've used prednisone enough times… Lol It sounds like your vet is doing a great job, I'm sure that she will start to feel better soon!!! Give her some big hugs from TN!!!

    Yes, it's tropical... what ever that means I gave her the antibiotics this morning and so far so good. She does look better already I think, hard to tell, but she acts her normal needy self so I feel a bit better

    Sounds like a good treatment plan if her skin is bad, hopefully she will feel better in a day or two.
