my 10 pound chihuahua just ate a 25 mg benadryl that my mastiff dropped. Will it hurt her and what do I need to do?

Hello, and thanks for writing in.

That amount of Benadryl in a dog Daisy's size will likely cause drowsiness/sedation, but otherwise should not be harmful. The sleepy effects may last for several hours, but should subside overnight. She should be fine, but it's always best to ask and find out.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you and Daisy further.
