Answered By

A. If your dog is lethargic and is red with more bumps then you should call your vet and give them an update. Your veterinarian may want to see your puppy again and possibly change the medication. Your puppy could be having an allergic reaction or may have an additional skin infection. Please call your veterinarian as soon as possible to discuss as that doesn't sound normal.
