How much Benadryl can I give my 10 pound Schipperke prior to a vet's visit for shots? This would be a one time dose, given 30 minutes prior to the visit. She is very high-strung and tries to bite whom ever is with her when the shot is given, even jumps off the examining table and hurts herself.

HiCustomer

The routine dose of Benadryl is 1-2mg per pound of dog. So if your dog weighs 10 pounds, she could have 1/2 - 1 of the 25mg tablets.

 

I hope this helps.
