  8. According to MSD Veterinary Manual, the recommended dose
    of Benadryl for dogs is 2-4mg/kg (or 0.9-1.8mg/lb) given two or three times per day.
    Since Benadryl is given off-label in veterinary medicine and because underlying diseases and other medications can affect the optimal dosage,
    the human guidelines should not be followed and dogs should be given the dose recommended by their vet.
