Give 1mg of Benadryl per pound such that if your dog weighs 30 pounds, you should give it 30 mg of Benadryl. Administer the medicine three times in a day

Talk your veterinarian - while antihistamines are generally safe, there are the potential for side effects particularly if your dog has chronic organ failure (renal failure, liver failure, congestive heart failure, etc.). Also, your vet will talk you through how to figure out which formulation to buy (there are multiple different concentrations of Benadryl and at least two different types, liquid and pill form) and how to figure out how much to give your dog on what schedule. Your vet will also describe what side effects to look for that may indicate a serious reaction to the Benadryl.
