This answer was rated:

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.


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.
