My dog has hives...face swollen...bumps all over body with raised fur on them. He is a great dane 140lbs. His breathing is not labored and his active around the house. He is eating and drinking. Just looking miserable. I gave him 2 25mg regular Benedryl. More, less?

This is Dr. Christian. Welcome to JustAnswer. You can actually give 100mg of benadryl every 8 hours. I typically recommend giving it for 24 hours. If the symptoms persist then have him seen by a vet. He might need steroids to control the allergic reaction. If you have more questions please let me know.
