I have sprayed the area with a dog hydrocortisone spray but I wanted to know if I can give her Benedryl? Thank you. Kay
This question has also been asked and answered here: How much Benadryl can I give my dog?
Yes you can give her benadryl. My old dog has a problem every time we move, I think its nerves, lol. He weighs between 13-15 pounds. The vet has told me to give him a tsp of benadryl elixir. He can have that twice a day. If it gets too bad, I have to take him to the vet and get prednisone for a few days. Be sure to keep her nails cut and smoothed so she can't dig. Try to keep her from biting at it.
Hi kay I wanted to address your question as well. Yes, it is okay and for the weight of your dog... 1/2 of a 25mg pill is perfectly within the limits. But a whole 25mg pill is too much for the weight of your dog and certainly wouldn't do that dose twice daily.
You can also confirm this with your vet, who would probably want to do a workup to see if anything else is going on.
