It sound as if Roxy is suffering a delyaed hypersensitivity reaction to her vaccines. Yes, diphenhydramine (Benadryl) can be helpful at a dose of 1 mg per pound of body weight repeated in 8-12 hour intervals if need be. Please note that the children's solution is quite distasteful to dogs so you might mix it into a gruel of wet food and give it with an eyedropper between Roxy's cheek teeth and cheek. Alternatively, you can give a pill or capsule making sure that you dose it down for a dog of Roxy's size. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
