Is Benadryl ok to give pigs I can't find it when I search?
- You can quote me
2. Excerpted from an email from my veterinarian to me:
"0.25 to 1 mg/lb body weight every 8 to 12 hours, so for a 2 lb cavy, you would give up to 2 mg dose. Children's benadryl liquid is 12.5 mg/5 ml (tsp), so without a calculator the top dose would be roughly 1 ml (or less of course)."
In our experience it is well tolerated over a fairly large dosage range.
You can also consider chlorpheniramine (Chlor-Trimeton). Again, buy chlorpheniramine maleate *only* -- no added sinus, cough, sleep aid, whatever:
