Thanks Everyone. It really sucks to see your baby like this... but she is feeling a little bit better She wanted to go for a walk, so I waited until it cooled down and took her and of course that always seems to help us both

Sending good thoughts her way! fourth of July weekend is not a bad one for a dog to be knocked out with benadryl anyway.
I asked her the same thing!WHYMADDIEWHY?? I really have no clue - no 'tootsie rolls' - the bag has sat under the ferret cage ever since I moved back in Nov... dunno what possessed her to do it

And... Maddie's the ONE dog who is totally unfazed by fireworks.... go figure...
considering MASSIVE amounts for a couple other dogs... heh heh... just kidding (mostly)

Exactly why we want to avoid the pred, since she's on all the other stuff already. She has a medicated shampoo, but I wonder if that would help better? Hmm....

Thank you all She seems to be feeling much better this morning, back to her normal (much more active) self! She's still got the scabies, of course, but they're not bothering her AS much. Hopefully some will come off in the bath and she will feel EVEN better!!
She really wants to go with us to the beach, but I just don't think its worth the risk Sorry Maddie!

Sea water might do her skin a world of good

Oh, wait, you're going to the lake Nevermind.

I could really, really use some more chaz vibes for Maddie...

She (of course) got a secondary infection from the reaction & all the scratching and everything. Both the vet and myself had expected this, I had medicine on hand and another medicated shampoo to use... But, its getting progressively worse, and fast. It feels like practically overnight She's been extra extra itchy, but no new bumps... She got a bath last night. BIG red flag #1 she did not finish her whole dinner after. She left a few pieces in the bottom of the bowl. This is a dog who would eat an elephant in garbage. And this morning when I woke up, under her legs & belly are very (almost completely) raw And she hardly ate half of her breakfast HUGE RED FLAG (#2)... we are heading to the vet in a little bit, she has an appt at 4. I'm sure the pred is unavoidable at this point... she's just an soooo much medication right now, I am going to talk it over with the vet. I feel like something is just not right, she should not be getting worse and worse with all the medication she is on - unless it's the wrong medication, or something else, worse

I am ready to be medicated as well
