Calculating Benedryl

I think most pet owners have been through this. You call the vet because your pet has some sort of allergy and they tell you to give them Benedryl. That's it, nothing else, a sort of take two pills and call me in the morning answer. Then your dog is flipping and flopping like a fish in a frying pan. Sound familiar? That's because there is a weight calculation to Benedryl. It is 1mg for every pound, non drowsy obviously. Hope this helps!
