The dosage of Benedryl is 1/4 of a 25mg tablet. This comes out to about 6.25mg. I think, if you get the liquid the vet could give you the dosage. I got this for a 6lb dog, so I think it is 1mg per pound. Do others think this is correct?
Buddy Bear was completely fine and not scared whatsoever. I was the one who was completely terrified and yes very noisy.
I also agree with the 1mg per pound (that's what the vet recommended for Jr 2-3 times a day) But the vet recommended the 25mg pill not the liquid
Buddy Bear is roughly 4 pounds, literally would need 4mg.
6.25mg would be too much, though some cases they recommend 2mg per pound.
Possibly have to cut the 6.25 in half.
Which in reality is hard. But thankfully he was completely fine.
