If you are thinking that the treat may have caused an allergic reaction and you are asking if you can give benadryl, that would be safe to do. The dose is 1-2 mg per pound that your dog weighs so a 20 lb dog would get between 20 to 40 mg. This can be repeated two times per day. The pill that is available over the counter is typically 25 mg. so you may need to go with the children's liquid form which is typically 12.5 mg/teaspoon (or 2.5 mg/cc). Make sure that there are no other "cold-type" medications in it like decongestants.

If you are asking if it is safe to give something else, I would need to know what you are wanting to give.
