Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!So sorry that your dog is not feeling wellFirst and foremost please wash your dog immediately with dawn dish soap x 10 minutes before rinsing and repeat in 4-6 hours. We want to get this product off the skin to minimize spread and absorptionNext let's make sure you are giving an accurate dose for benadryl at 1 mg/ pound every 6-8 hours. This might cause mild sedation and in rare instances can cause hyper excitability but should help reduce symptomsIf she is not improving within an hour you may have to consider a veterinary er to treat her symptoms and provide relief. Unfortunately some products can have side effects neurologically so if she is progressing this is the best course of action to treat her. There are no direct cures but treatments that can be done in a veterinary setting that are not options at homeI hope this information makes sense. Please keep her in a quiet low lit room to minimize stimulation until she is feeling better..> If you have more questions or if I can help in any other way, please do not hesitate to ask!
