    DefaultBenadryl

    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?

    Found this on google - not sure if it is any use to you but they seem to say it works for itchy paws - so why not for itchy knees?

    Check out the site http://www.faqs.org/qa/qa-6922.html

    Yes, you can give benadryl to dogs. Dosage is 10 mg for dogs under 30lbs, 25mg for dogs 30-50lbs, and 50mg for dogs over 50lbs.

    Hope it works for you

    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!
