I don't have any but i can easily get to a chemist
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Not a problem

The answer is YES you can use them

I would like you to buy Benadryl or a product that contains the Diphenhydramine

Give 1.0-2.0 mg/kg by mouth two to three times a day

Okay?
If you are not sure of the right one please just text me from the chemist and I will help you out :)

Okay?
