    DefaultItchy itch itch...mosquito bites!

    So we went to the cottage this past holiday weekend (in Canada we just had a long weekend) and while we were up there, there were TONS of mosquitoes. We all came back with bites, including poor Phoebe. Of course us humans can use Afterbite or Bactine or other such things...but does anyone know of anything that helps with the itchies for dogs? She has a couple of bites that she keeps scratching and they seem to bug her quite a bit.

    The correct dosage is about 1mg per pound of your dog's weight. That's a shame she got bit up too. Is Phoebe on a preventative?

    We usually give Kody one benedryl tablet when he is bit. It definitely helps.

    My suggestion was going to be the benadryl
