Default Maddie vibes, please? :/

Saturday evening Maddie while I was out, my brother texted me that Maddie had gotten into stuff, and was getting sick.
So I came home, and kept a close eye on her. At first it was just normal vommiting and diahrea... nothing too extreme, and she still had her typical appetite. By Sunday evening, she was extra itchy, and her ears were red and inflammed. I cleaned them, and gave her a benedryl (this is probably what saved us through the weekend) Monday we went to the vet, she was swollen and broke out ALL over... back, belly, legs, head, neck(really bad on her neck) It was just awful
She ate Swheat Scoop cat litter (which is my ferret litter)... which IS digestible and all that, but it is WHEAT based... And Maddie is not supposed to have wheat Apparently, she is not just "sensitive" to grains, but is actually allergic to wheat
She got a benadryl shot (I forget the technical name) and I've been pushing benadryl at home, and her baths.

The worst is over, but she has scabs ALL OVER and she is very itchy & miserable (

Can I have som Get-Well-Soon Vibes, please??? It hurts my heart to see her like this. Her coat was looking so good, too, and now she looks really bad... and you can just tell she doesn't feel well

I am so sorry Maddie. Get that nasty stuff out of your system vibes from us and prayes for a speedy heal. Is there anything that would help clean it out of her?

I was trying to brainstorm with the vet, but we didn't come up with much., other than "time". Oh, other than prednisone (which we're avoiding)

Poor Maddie

Thats not yummy Maddie-why? I hope there were at least some tootsie rolls attached!

Sending good thoughts her way! fourth of July weekend is not a bad one for a dog to be knocked out with benadryl anyway.

Have you considered a thorough detox? Probiotics, VERY limited diet, lots of water?

Awwww...poor girl. Would a soda bath help soothe her? Benadryl is good stuff and yeah, if there are fire crackers going off near you, that should help keep her calmed down. Hopefully, she won't need prednisone. That stuff, while good in so many ways, is also hard on the liver. Vibes being sent that she gets over the itchiness and her scabs heal soon.
