Benadryl question

Good morning! Tuffy has been licking his paws a lot. Is it okay to give him one benadryl? He's 60 lbs.

You can give 1 mg per pound...

so he could actually have two 25 mg benedryls at 60 pounds.  i would start with one though and see how he does.

I give Emma 1/2 a pill

I give Emma 1/2 a pill as it makes her very sleepy....worse than her normal lazy

1/2 pill is enough to stop her from chewing....maybe because she's to busy sleeping
