my 7 lb dog just ate a adult benadryl 25 mg will she be ok?

Dr. Christian K. :

Hello. This is Dr. Christian. How long ago did she eat it?

Dr. Christian K. :

Does she take any medications or have any medical conditions?

Customer:

about 10 15 mins and she not on any meds

Customer:

no med cond

Customer:

she a 7 or 8 lb minpin

Dr. Christian K. :

That's good. The good news is that benadryl is a generally very safe medication. However, this much could make her extremely drowsy so it is best to make her vomit. Give her 2 teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide and then repeat that in 10 minutes if needed. If she gets extremely drowsy (such as unable to get her to respond easily) then have her seen by your vet. Most likely she will be just fine however.
