Hello again,

This is a commonly asked question, I have worked out an answer for you below ...

1. Well your vet will have a range of prescription drugs in tablet form which can be prescribed in this sort of situation, and this would be your best option. However in terms of human over the counter possibilities your only option would be Benadryl, this drug is known to have sedative properties in the dog. Follow this link for more information on how this drug is used in dogs including dose rates : LINK

2. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if would like to talk things over with me further.
