Welcome! Thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will be assisting you today. Friend, 150mg of Benadryl will not be toxic to a 130 lbs Beatrice, this dose is within therapeutic limit, she will be fine; no need to worry. My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.

At worst she may become a little sleepier. But, dogs tend to be more resistant to the sedative effects of benadryl so likely you will not see any symptoms.
