Anyone know if this is harmful to dogs? Gus has had a little rash on his left knee that the vet can't get rid of. He just seems to want to prescribe expensive topical meds that do no good and run up a big bill. We thought the Benadryl may relieve the itching. Any thoughts?
Benedryl is fine. We keep it on hand because Hudler gets major reactions if he's bit by bees, fortunately it's only happened 2x. The dosage is 1 mg for every pound. So those little pink pills are good for 25# of dog. Hudler's about 90# and we would give him 4. But that's for a major reaction!
