Benadryl works great, My dog had something funky going on with her coat and I gave her some and it cleared right up.

For those who may or may not know, According to my vet, Benadryl, as stated by wingman and others is great for allergies, etc for adult dogs, AS WELL AS puppies (as young as 4 months). So those of you who have puppies who suffer from allergies, rest assured, this is a great asset and definitely helps for those awful allergic reactions. As stated in the main article, 1mg per pound every 8 hours.... don't go overboard, and DEFINITELY consult your vet with any questions PRIOR to treating at home. Good Luck guys!

Runny nose doesn't mean anything. What is dry and irritated? Please be more specific. Also, I think 8 weeks is too young; additionally, I don't recommend it until I know what exactly you are giving it to the pup for.

You should consult your vet first before giving any medications. The dog might not be compatible with these medications and they might have adverse effect to it.

Or you could just follow those dosing instructions, and use it sensibly. There is no reason to call your vet for every little thing. With a bit of research and investigation you can solve a lot of your problems yourself. Consult your vet if it makes you feel more comfortable, but there are tons and tons of people who use benedryl on there dogs on a regular basis without any adverse reactions.

it's virtually impossible to be allergic to benadryl or any antihistamine. side effects should not be confused with allergic reactions. it would be like saying " i'm allergic to sleeping pills because they make me drowsy". the only thing you can be allergic to in a benadryl is the makeup of the capsule or the red dye in the tablet but very , very unlikely.

In my experience, it depends on the dog. One of my dogs has never needed benedryl so I don't know how much it would take. Two of them - one weighing in at a giant 45 pounds while the other is a tiny 92 - require only two benedryl capsules. However, my girl is 80 pounds and needed 4 benedryl the last time she had an allergic reaction.

I give Lola 50mg of Benadryl twice a day - just started about 5 days ago. It's working an absolute charm. I'm going to try cutting her down to 1 capsule 3x a day after we're sure that she's stabilized.

I have to add that a pit I previously had, was playing in my mom's garden and got his nose stung by some thing. I freaked. Mistakenly took him to the pet Dr and they charged me over $200 to shove one normal size pill of benadryl down his throat he was knocked out by the time we made home and nose returned to normal. I never knew until then that this was kosher for dogs.

yes, or u can use cheap contact solution (vet told will work) to rinse eye or use a warm wash cloth. I took my dog into the vet for her eye have green goo and eye was red, paid money for nothing because it went away with keeping it clean. but if it gets worse definitely take your dog to the vet. but with the Benadryl you just get your dog to take it down. and in about an hour she will be drowsy and on her way to sleep. vet also so said its 1mg/1lb so for a dog 25lbs and over they only get one 25mg pill.
