I gave our 4 year old dog, 18 pound dog 25mg of benadryl. Thought about it and realized that was dosage for our other dog at 30 pounds. Do i need to do anything? will she be ok?


The dose rate range for Benadryl is quite wide and the dose Bella received is well within the safe dosage range. It's a very safe medication and pretty well free of side effects.

Just expect some drowsiness as you've already noticed.

I hope I've been of help. I'll be on line for the next few hours if you have any follow up quetsions.

Kindest regards, Peter
