    DefaultBenedryl plus antibiotics?

    Sorry for posting here but Harlee is so itchy I wanted answers as soon as possible. I took her to the vet yesterday and he said might be a staph infection and mange. Gave her a shot and antibiotics for staph and revolution for mange. She is so itchy today, can I give her benedryl plus the antibitoics? I feel so bad for her.

    I have no idea what could have caused this.

    I also thought I remembered that I read mange had something to do with being crated is this true?

    I wouldn't give her anything without talking to the vet first. Poor thing.

    I don't think mange has anything to do with crating except it can be stress related.

    Thanks Labby, I guess I will call tomorrow and see, I just thought I would check because I feel terrible for her. SHe is not a stressed puppy at all so that makes me feel better. I have no idea how she got this or why but hopefully it will clear up soon.

    He called back, and I went and got yet another perscription, this one is a mix of prendisone and an anti inflamatory, said it should help
