My dog is taking Previcox and Prednisone, is this harmful?
My dog is eleven, he weights 13lbs and has been diagnosed with MCTs Grade 3. The Vet prescribed Previcox 57mg, Prednisone 5mg and Benedryl 12.5mg . Last night after giving him the Previcox and Benedryl he started breathing so heavily it was awful. I read online that Previcox and Prednisone should not be taken together. I haven't given him any medication this morning and his breathing is normal and he seems more alert.
Dr Cheng, thank you so much, for taking the time to read my question. I will try the Pepcid and ask that he be put on some other type of medication. I keep reading that Previcox and Prednisone aren't a good combination.
