Stinging nettles

There are two medications which may help with her discomfort, assuming she's not taking other medications.The first is benadryl. It can be dosed at 1mg/pound of body weight every 8 hours by mouth.The other is aspirin, which is based on weight. You can use the chart here to determine how much she needs: http://www.veterinaryplace.com/dog-medicine/aspirin-for-dogs/If she is not greatly improved by morning, I would recommend taking her to see your vet for some stronger medication for her discomfort.Did my response help to answer all of the questions that you had regarding your companion?Once you're satisfied with our dialogue, please take the time to issue a rating for me so that I am compensated for helping you today.
