Is it safe to use liquid childrens benadryl or should you just use the pills for dogs? Curious
Liquid is fine to use. Thanks for bringing this up. I have to check with the vet about the dosage for Pebbles......she's growing so fast!
I wonder if there's a chart with dosage and weight?
We had our 2nd outting earlier tonight. She had a blast!!! But with the warmer weather around the corner bees will be out too.
NO WAIT! I just found this info........
BRAND NAME BENADRYL
Available in 25 mg & 50 mg capsules (oral suspension is too high in alcohol content to be used for animals.
We only use the pills because I remember the dosage easily and it's easy to give....
1mg per pound of dog....Mine get 3 pills if they need it...
thanks, I thought I had heard not to use liquid but didn't know why. I have seen dosages 1-2mg per pound. I always stick to the 1mg per pound out of caution.
We gave Jack 1 pill when he had an ear infection. He was just a itchy, wasn't sleepy and it was the only time he wet in his crate.
My vet recommended 1 mg per pound for itchies and 2 mg per pound for an allergic reaction.
