    We worked in the yard all weekend and of course Zoe was outside with us the entire time. This morning I noticed her belly and legs have red marks which appears to be ant/bug bites. Do you know of anything I can do to relieve the itching? Is Benadryl (sp?) cream save to put on animals. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    You can actually give childrens benadryl in the liquid form to your dog just follow the dosage given on the back according to weight.
    My Pekingese has allergies and is also allergic to her vaccinations and has to take benadryl when she has an allergy flare up and also before being vaccinated. Im sure there are Vets who will disagree with me but my Vet was actually the one who recommended it to me rather then having to get expensive allergy shots.
    I would think the cream might be harmful to your dog if he/she licks it off?

    I know a woman who gave her bulldog children's Benadryl (in pill form) and her dog was fine or maybe it was Tylonel sorry, I don't remember.

    Thanks for the advice. I just called my vet and they said that you can put the benedryl cream or spray on the bites to relieve the itching. She said its not harmful if she licks it off. That was my biggest concern. I'll probably just go with the liquid idea to be on the safe side. Thanks again for your help.
