I'm not a veterinarian or the manufacturer of Benadryl.

And put desitin on the raw spots so they aren't as itchy.

The dose is 1mg per pound of body weight, so your dog can take 100 mgs. I have given benadryl to cats and dogs when they have been stung by bees.  It does make them a bit sleepy, just like humans.

You can give 1-2 mg per pound of body weight 3x's per day. (ex: 25lb dog gets 50mg tablet every 8 hours)

Animals. Allergic to the outside/nature. Unbelievable and only in America.
