Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian. Welcome to JustAnswer! I’d like to help with your concerns regarding Sasha.

I'm so sorry to hear that she's feeling so uncomfortable.

How much does she weigh?

I'm I correct in understanding that you gave 50mg Vistaril tonight, 2 hours ago? Did that reduce any of her hives or swelling around her eyes?

65 pounds it does help. This is a less intense repeat of last night

Can I give her another 25mg of vistaril or Benadryl? She seems calm now but does become very hyper and itching bad. She was shaking earlier, I sat with her and she has calmed down

Vistaril and Benadryl work by the same anti-histamine process. Vistaril is just a newer generation of the drug and has less of the side effects.

If it has been 2 hrs since the last dose, I would recommend giving another 25mg of the Vistaril.

She can then have 75mg every 8hrs (starting the clock from that first dose 2 hrs ago) if the itching and hives persist.

A cool water only bath can also help to reduce her itching and applying a cool pack above her eyes for 10-15min will help to give her some relief from the swelling and itching on her face.
