    DefaultQuestion re Benedryl, Tucker has to have a distemper booster

    His titer came up to say that he needs a distemper booster. He's only had one distemper shot in his life, when he was a puppy, and his face swelled up. The vet told me to give him 50-75 (mg?) of Benedryl before the shot.

    How soon before? Is it pill form?

    Shoot, Amy, just seeing this. I'd give it to him about an hour before his appointment. You can get it in pill or liquid (regular strength pills are 25 mg each). I give Caleb the tablets. Since Caleb gets it all summer, I buy the generic at WalMart.

    Yep, three of the 25 mg tabs.
