Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

I am so sorry no one has assisted you yet today. It would not be advised to give your dog this product because it has a high concentration of acetaminophen which is not advised in dogs due to the possible resulting liver issues

You can try claritin as an alternative to benadryl, 10 mg 1/4 tablet every 24 hours to see if that helps with the sneeze and the itch.

In addition:
- Sneeze the steam of the shower can help
- Itch using an oatmeal-based dog shampoo with ten minute contact time before rinsing
- Fish oil 1000 mg EPA & DHA daily to improve the health of the skin and coat but may take 2-4 weeks for full effect
- Ensure you are feeding a high quality organic diet with no by products which can exacerbate itching in a dog

I hope this information makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both today!
