    KOni ate 3 possibly 4 small Benadryl Allergy pills. Will he be ok?

    I came home to find out he ate this. He just ate dinner fine. I am concerned

    How much does Koni weigh and what's the mg. of the pills?

    Koni weighs around 90lbs. I do not have the box for the pills, only the sheet of them. It doesn't say the mg. on it.

    He is drinking lots of water.

    Are they Benedryl or Claritin?

    They are Benadryl. Found the box, 25 mg.

    If he ate 3 pills of 25mg. that should be fine for his weight right?

    I know you can give dogs benadryl but I don't know if you can give them that much. You should probably call the vet and ask him. He's a big dog so he should be ok

    They are tiny pills, half the size of a finger nail, vertically.

    My vet told me to give my pom half of a 25 mil pill twice a day for his allergies so I know that they can have benadryl. As big as he is I think he will be fine. I wouldn't think it would take long for you to know if it was having an effect on him or not. I think it's fine though.

    Benadryl is usually okay for dogs. Bailey was getting 2 a day for allergies and she is only 70 lbs.
