Hi there,
Thank you for your question regarding your 3 year old Mini Schnauzer. In answer to your question, although both drugs are antihistamines, as a one off dosage, yes Benadryl would be fine to give after a Temaril-P. The dose of Benadryl we use is 1mg per lb every 12 hours as needed. Just double check that it is Benadryl (diphenhydramine) that you have. I wouldn't recommend this as a long term approach, but for tonight - that will be absolutely fine.
Please let me know if you have any other questions. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back. I am happy to address follow-up questions. Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
Kind Regards,
Dr E
