How much liquid Benadryl can I give my dog?

Resolved Question:

How much liquid children's Benadryl can I give my 11 lb dog?

The dosage for Benadryl is 1mg per pound. You can give your girl 1 teaspoon (12.5 mg) of the children's Benadryl every 8-12 hours as needed for no more than 3 days. If she needs to have it longer than that then she'll need to see a vet.

I hope this helps.
