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.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.
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.Thanks for the post. Is it an over the counter drug? I noticed my dog has an eye infection kind of like cherry eye.
BUMP^^^^^^I was reading all the posts....When do you stop giving the Benadryl if it works so well? My 10 mo old female is chewing her paws till they bleed...and her eyes and chin seem very red and irritated. took her to the vet, they gave her a shot, then "prescribed" $258 worth of other items (bathing soaps and creams and pills etc). I said yes to the shot and the take home pills....NOTHING has worked.
I completely agree with you. After talking to my Vet and my sister that uses Benadryl quite a lot for her dogs, I decided to look into it. I bought a bottle of Benadryl and went onto the internet to look for the amount to give my dogs. I found a chart, which I can share is: Benadryl For Dogs | Any Dog Rescue What I did was print the page, then cut out the chart and put it onto my refrigerator. Since I have two pitbulls, both vary in weight, I have this chart to look at when I need to give them some benadryl for their anxiety, which they get often.Thanks for providing information to help make decisions about how to use the drug with our pet! I do believe that it's a perfectly safe medication to give a dog when used properly. But it's always a good idea to consult with the Vet before giving the dog anything out of the ordinary.
