I would like to use Benadryl on my very hyper Yorkie of 1 year old and about 13 lb to be able to cut her hair. She is very healthy and does not take any medicine, but after her sterilization surgery she does not allow anybody to groom her.  Please advise. Thanks a lot  -Cecibel-

Dear Cecibel,

An occasional use of Benadryl is safe as long as it is used in the correct amount. However, since you connect the behavioral stress to having had surgery you might try Anxietrex for a few weeks to help reduce the emotional component. I would also use Chill Out Chews just before the grooming session to help her handle the stressful event more gracefully. You can use it to retrain her response.

Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
