what is the safe dose of liquid benadryl for dogs? My 10 pound doxy had immunization shots today, and apparently they forgot to leave out the lepto -- which always makes her itch and swell.   thanks Amy


The safe dosage is 1-2 mgs per pound of body weight every 12 hours. In this case if you are using liquid you can give 2 teaspoons full or 3/4 of an adult pill of Benedryl. I hope your baby feels better soon! Joan
