Customer Question

I'm a little worried about my dog. She's been drinking more water than usual tonight (a full bowl within a couple hours) and she seems restless and isn't sleeping well. Also her breathing is faster and heavier than normal (not panting). She's out of her normal allergy medicine and her vet didn't have any, so they suggested I give her some Benadryl. They said to give her 1/2 of a 25mg tablet, but I only gave her 1/4 of one. Not sure if that has anything to do with it, though. She's a 3 year old pug and usually weighs about 16 lbs.
