Customer Question

Hello, well my dog has welts all over her body. She is about 75lbs and was not scratching, but i wanted to know how much benadril can we give her.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Trixie
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Trixie?
Customer: Her diet hasnt changed and we cannot find a stinger or anything on her body.

Trixie can be given the maximum dose of 50 mg of Benadryl repeated in 8-12 hours if necessary. If you happen to have prednisone at home, 20 mg repeated in 12 hours will be even more effective as long as she doesn't suffer from a disorder in which a steroid such as prednisone would be contraindicated. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
