Benedryl Dosing For Allergies
I picked up some Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride 25mg (generic benedryl) for my adult (Well, he's like 16-17 months old anyhow) golden retriever's allergies. I know that's used fairly commonly as an allergy medicine for dogs.
For those of you who are using it or have used it for your adult goldens in the past- How many pills did you administer how many times a day?
I tried Clortabs and loratadine first, because I didn't like the idea of Benedryl due to it's sedative effect, but the first two medicines weren't very effective. Is the drowsiness as a side effect exaggerated or is it pretty intense?
How long does allergy season for golden retrievers last anyhow? Will his symptoms likely start to naturally ease a little bit as the weather gets cooler?
