  • The vet tells me to give my dogs benadryl when there tummy's arent feeling so great or for allergic reactions but it might help the same way. only one tablet.

  • Don't give her anything for people- too dangerous unless the vet okays it. Call and talk to the tech.

  • I work for a holistic vet and we recommend ginger to stop car sickness, you can give her a little bit to eat or buy a product like "ease the quese" that contains ginger.

  • At ten pounds the dose she needs in unlikely to be the same as a human dose of medicine. Call the vet- they can give something to at least keep her calmer in the car (one of our dogs used to get a sedative before long car rides, otherwise she would freak out completely!)

  • Benadryl is for allergies! Don't give Dram. either. Call your vet and ask for something, they can prob. give you some pills without seeing your pet, if you know the weight.
