Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years. I would love to assist Morrison.
Do you have any Plain Benedryl in the house?
You have not responded. I will go ahead and giive you some information to help Morrison. Since his ear is inflamed, there is most likely an infection in there. to calm him and stop him from scratching at the ear we need to give him some plain Benedryl. It can be give at 1-2 mgs per pound of body weight. The Benedryl will stop the itching, but the ear will need to be treated first thing in the morning by the Vet. They will clean it and start him on some Medication. If he continues to scratch like that he will wind up with an Aural Hematoma from the trauma to the ear. We need to try and make him comfortable, until he can see the Vet.

I am cehcking back in to see how your dog is doing. Did te Vet check the ear and treat it? Did the Benedryl help?
