My 5 year Cavalier, Jeszel, has had SM for a couple of years, but was only diagnosed recently. She is on 200mg Gabapentin 3x per day and Tagamet 50 mg 2x a day.
She has had a stuffy nose for the past few days, so I took her to the vet today. He said her heart and lungs are fine and she does not have an infection because her fluid is clear. He thinks it is allergies. He wants her to take take benadryl twice a day for a few weeks. He looked and does not see my drugs on the benedryl drugs interaction list.
I'm worried because the sites that tell what drugs interact with benadryl won't list Gabapentin or Tagamet since they are not usually used for dogs.
I'm emailing my neurologist about this, but he has no experience with SM dogs and may not know. So far everything that we have done for Jeszel is from my research using Clare's site and others sites like this one.
Has anyone give there SM dog benadryl? Should it be taken separately from the Gabapentin and/or Tagamet.
Thanks, I appreciate any help.
