Anxious dog flying--Benedryl??
Hello. Long time lurker here. Our 5.5 yr old dog is flying tomorrow. They say your dog an not be sedated in any manner. We have given her Benedryl in the past for allergies and to help calm her, as she isn't even a fan of car rides!! She weighs 30 lbs, so was thinking of maybe giving her 1 tab(25mg) of benedryl tomorrow morning before our noon flight. Our first leg is 3 hrs, then nearly a 3 hr lay over, then another 3 hr flight, and of course we can't see her between flights. She isn't a big fan of her crate, but she is a lot better now then what she used to be. Just would like something that would help calm her a bit. Tried one of those Thundershirts, and it didn't seem to help. Will put a shirt into the crate that my wife wears all the time. Just want to help with her anxiety! Thanks
