    Question Can i give my puppy children's benadryl every day?

    Puppy just got spayed and now she seems better but she has a higher chance of ripping her wound back open. She so active and she found a way to scratch her wound since its beginning to itch her. I was wondering if i could give my dog children's benadryl every day until we take her staples out which is another week?

    I wouldn't advise it - your dog is the best at evaluating her health. Put a cone on her and let her heal up.

    Put some Cortisone cream on the shaved area near (but not on) the incision. It will stop the prickly feeling from the shaved hair growing back. You can also put a pair of boys underwear on her backwards so the tail comes out the crotch.

    Benadryl won't reduce the itching unless its caused by an allergy. Something to soothe her skin and reduce inflammation (like cortisone cream) will work better.
