My four-year-old Yorky suddenly went berzerk with itchiness

Customer Question

My four-year-old Yorky suddenly went berzerk with itchiness this evening. He's never done it before but it is now been five hours. I gave him a tiny bit of Benadryl before I realized it was the benedryl you give for sneezing and itchy eyes. I've bathed him in water with apple cider, And tried to put some lotion on him, any other suggestions?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

What dose of Benadryl did you give?

Can you confirm its active ingredient is Diphenhydramine?

What does Winston weigh?

Any changes to his skin? Where is he itchy specifically?
