Q. I know my dog he is a pug Jack Russell he has an ear infection his ears bleeding that looks terrible inside the ear very moist can I give him benadryl
DR. CHRISTIE LONG, D.V.M., C.V.A.
A. Benadryl is typically a safe drug to give to dogs, however from your description it sounds like your dog has an ear infection, most likely due to a yeast overgrowth. While Benadryl may calm the itching *slightly* it won't treat the infection. He needs anti-fungal drugs for that. Schedule an appointment with your vet to get the cause of the infection diagnosed and appropriately treated.
