This past weekend we gave the three dogs flea baths and I noticed that Ellie had a few irritated, red spots on her hind quarters. I could tell that she was bothered and decided to give her a little relief in the form of Benadryl.
I got online and made sure that I could in fact give her Benadryl and I found this CHART so I felt comfortable giving Ellie an adult human dose.
Well, it definitely did the job. Ellie already spends most of her day relaxing in sun puddles, but yesterday she was beyond relaxed. At one point Shannon said that he thought he should check to make sure that she was still breathing because she did not move when he walked past her into the house.
It definitely offered the old girl some relief. I noticed that she had not messed with her irritations all day, and this morning when I fed her she seemed to be better than she had been the past week.
I may break the dose in half the next time, but at least I know it works for my Sweet Ellie Girl and gives her some relief.
