How often can I give Benadryl in one day?
Bear is having another bout with allergies due to fleas. My fault- I wasn't paying attention to when he had to have flea meds. We've ordered flea meds online, but they won't be here for a few days. I can go pick some up from the vet tomorrow, had already planned on it. At 11:00 this morning, I gave him 50 mg. of benadryl, now at 5:30 he has really big welts. I was planning on waiting until bedtime to give him more, but I don't think he can wait that long, he gets really uncomfortable with hives.
My question is, can I give him 50 mg. now, and then give it to him again around midnight or so, so that he will be able to sleep comfortably? I can't get ahold of the vet of course, so thought for a quick answer I'd ask here.
