    I was just kidding about the missing pills. I have a weird sense of humor
    sometimes and not everyone is on board my crazy train...

    Seriously though, The 2 pills can be given at one time.? Or say, 8 hours apart.

    Thanks again.....
    One pill for each 25 pounds of dog, given twice a day... so if your dog is 50 pounds you would give her/him 2 pills in the morning and 2 pills at night. Princess Gracie is 40 pounds so we give her 1 in the morning and 1 at night just to be on the safe side. It works for her.

    But,,,,, we only give her benedryl if she really is in need of relief.

    OMG you kill it! haha I was like how do you lose so many pills?!?! As if you really counted out the 524 right? lol. Yes 2 at 1 time, that is a dosage. Then the next dosage would be 2 more.

    @Jack Daniels, I KNEW you were BS'ing!! But then I had to second guess myself!! Especially when you said Jack "helped" you pick them up!! You got me!!!! I do spread his out to around 10 hours apart but that is just me. I only give him 2 when he is really bad.

    @KMARINO

    and by "Really Bad" ...what symptoms does he have.?
    I just want to compare Vegas with Jack.

    Both of Jack's eyes are watery, one more than the other.
    His wrinkles down he cheeks are contantly wet. He tears up even more when he plays ...
    Surprisingly, his nose rope is always dry.....

    Thanks

    @Jack Daniels
    Really bad to me is...

    Bad, just watery eyes from his allergies, no swelling.

    Really bad, eyes running and red and swollen. Today is a 2 benedryl day for Vegas, his left eye is puffy and red around the watery eye.

    Look at the post Just Noses that BruceP started today, I just took that picture an hour ago, you can see his eye is really wet and puffy that to me is a 2 benedryl day.

    Also, giving benedryl or any other antihistamine is for temporary relief. You should make an attempt to find out what is causing the problem and try to correct it. I have been told that too much antihistamine for too long may cause your dog to get dry eye which is another bag of worms altogether. We give HRH AND me generic benedryl when allergies warrant it.
    YES - I agree with BruceP - Dont' treat benadryl chronically without your vets approval. Also - Too many Benadryl can be toxic to your dog and cause many issues including death. So go find those other 74 pills right away! If you suspect your bully ate them - you might need to get his stomach pumped!

    As far as overly watery eyes - try to find to root cause. I found out my bully has an internal eye lash that is causing tearing on one side. The vet looked inside the rim of his eye lid for these (common for our breed) and found 1 small tiny eyelash in there. The eyelash is very tiny, but quite irritating (think how thick their coat is - and that is how thick this eye lash is). The vet let me see this with his special eye gear and I could see it. It could be serious to the eye and cause injury (scratched cornea) if not removed. They are waiting until he is 2 years old - to make sure not other ones appear - before we schedule surgery to have it taken out. Not sure if anyone else has had this problem with their bullies.Maybe I will post a new thread about internal eye lashes to see what response we get.

    Good luck!

    I worry about the effectiveness (is that a word?) of something as magical as Benedryl if it's been given every day. Wouldn't the stuff kinda "wear off" over time?

    @KMARINO - I knew he was goofing around too. <==== You can always count @Jack Daniels for some of that Tom Foolery.
