Can I Give My Dog Benadryl And If So, How Much?

Benadryl is a common drug that pet owners routinely administer to their pets. Even though the drug is safe, pet owners should keep in mind the following.

Key takeaways:

– Benadryl is an antihistamine used to treat allergic reactions, as a mild sedative, and as a pre-treatment for vaccine reaction.

– Do not give your pet Benadryl if they have conditions such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and glaucoma.

– Immediately go to your vet if the pet gets an acute allergic reaction such as facial swelling and difficulty breathing.

The standard dosage for oral Benadryl is 1 mg per pound of body weight, given 2-3 times a day. Always double check the dosage before giving an over the counter medication.
