Hello AMWarhurst. I'd not give any Benadryl to a dog. Best of my knowledge its not meant for our canine friends. Why are you thinking of doing so? Best of wishes, pledge

It is ok for dogs to take benadryl safely as long as the dose is correct for the pounds. My bicho who weighs 29 pounds is allowed 25mg twice a day or every 12 hours for allergies... Mary

Very true unless otherwise stated by vet for health problems

Agreed Mary. Benadryl is what our vet suggested to have on hand if my dogs were ever stung by anything.

Lets end the bickering, Both Mary and I have raised dogs and asked our vets what to give them, but here's the link to vetinfo that tells you about the 4 meds you give to dogs, benadryl being one of them.
