My dog ingested some Benadryl extra strength itch stopping cream. He seems to be acting normal. What should I do
Welcome! My name isXXXXX am a UC Davis graduate, and currently, a Medical Director of a veterinary hospital.

I am sorry to hear about this concern for Rowdy.
Well, I am not concerned about any toxicity from it. But, you will need to keep an eye out for any gastrointestinal symptoms including:
- vomiting (not likely)
- diarrhea (possibly)
- loss of appetite
- drooling

Otherwise, I see no need to take any emergency action at this time, and no need to induce vomiting.

Please let me know if there is anything I did not cover for you. I hope that information has been helpful.
