Hello,

This is Dr. Christian. I'd like to help. Does Ivy have any medical conditions or take any other medications?

Expert:  Dr. Christian K. replied 1 year ago.

You can try giving her 50mg of benadryl every 8 to 12 hours. For many dogs it doesn't work so if that occurs consider talking to your vet about a prescription medication.

Hi Frank,
I'm just following up on our conversation about Ivy. How is everything going?
