Benadryl is an antihistamine that is bought at any drugstore/pharmacy and is used to fight allergies and hay fever (sneezing, runnynose, itchy watery eyes, skin itch and hives according to the packaging). I buy a box of 12 caplets (25mg) each and give Harley 1/2 when he is having an issue with his allergies. Harley weighs about 16 lbs and that is the suggested dosage from the Vet.

As for horses....I don't know if it can be used. I guess your Vet would be able to tell you, but I also don't know if these pills come in a higher dose.

(btw....there is also benadryl cough syrup!)
