Customer Question
We have an older...

We have an older Cane Corso female dog. We have a new grandson - 4 months- that visits regularly. Our dog goes nuts when he visits, I think it is jealousy but she jumps and nips at him. We were told that Benadryl may clam her. What are your thoughts in general and specifically the use of Benadryl to calm her.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name?

Mona

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Mona?

Her health is good but she has lived a very quiet life until recently. We moved from Maryland to Maine and I think the whole process has unnerved her. She has to be with us all the time. She does not act our when we leave her alone however.

I am sorry to hear your older Cane Corso is nipping at your grandson.

Benadryl does not really calm dogs much. I use it for allergies in dog, and usually there is no sedation with it. It is safe to try; how much does she weigh?

She is between 90 and 100. She has dropped some weight due to move.
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

How old is your dog? Did you raise her since she was a puppy? Has she ever been around infants before? Usually if a dog was not exposed to children when she was a puppy, they tend no to accept them well.

She could take 100 mg of Benadryl up to every 8 hours, but I would not expect it (or any drug) to make her truly safe around this child.
