Hello,

Thanks for your question and Happy New Year! I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

Yes, you can give Benadryl with cyclosporine. The dose is 1 mg per pound (25 mg for a 25 pound dog) 2 to 3 times daily.

Is there anything else I can help with, or answer? Kindly consider rating my answer so the website knows I helped you today; you can still ask questions after rating.
