JESSICA L DESROSIERS
A. Benadryl is an antihistamine and can be used in pets to help with allergic response such as flea bite allergy.. Cats typically require a much lower dosage of medication compared to dogs and humans, so your vet should be contacted to provide the correct dosage for your cat's weight.
With flea bite allergies, it is best also to stop the initial problem- fleas. Placing your cat on a monthly flea preventive as well as treating the home or any places your cat frequents can help reduce and eliminate fleas over time to prevent further bites and allergies from happening.
