    Default Allergy Medicine

    Is it okay to give generic adult benydryl? Or do I have to get the children's dosage.

    Adult, 1 pill per 25 lbs. Vegas is 60 lbs. so he can have two. Makes them very tired and thirsty.

    Do you use for itchey ears? Otis has been on ear infection medicane, didnt seem like it was clearing up so we asked for a different kind - he has been off of it for 2 days and now back to scratching behind his ear - it got so red last night at midnight that I have him a benedryl, put neosporin on the scratches and gave him another dose of his ear infection medicane. So, I guess my question is should I have given him the benedryl?

    It can't hurt to give it a try.

    I figured the benedryl would help the itching. Within 15 minutes he was curled up in a ball back to sleep.

    Yes, I give her one when I see her start itching the ear. She has always had issues with the 'brown' ear so I keep a close watch on it.

    I should have been more clear... Banks has a white/freckled ear and a brindle ear.... for some reaason the brindle (brown) ear always has some redness or it just bothers her. sorry about that
