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

Luckily benadryl has a very wide margin of safety and she should be just fine. She will sleep well tonight and monitoring her closely for responsiveness the next 4-8 hours is advised as a precaution but she should be back to normal by morning

If you note that she is not as responsive as she should be overnight then please consider a veterinary er. Just as with people some pets can be more sensitive to certain medications so knowing what to monitor for is key. But in general this shouldn't be an issue for your little one overnight.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions I can assist with today
