Yes, Rimadyl and Benadryl can be given in the same day, though if the Benadryl was not prescribed, I would talk to the vet about it's use long-term. Keep in mind it can make your Sheltie very drowsy, just as with some people. The preferred dose, especially wen used simultaneous with other meds, is 1mg per pound of body weight.
