The dose of benedryl according to a veterinary PDR is 1-2 mg per pound of body weight, "children's" Benedryl is usually 12.5 mg. and it's noxious tasting *smile* -- if it were me I'd break an adult caplet in half (1/2 of 25 == 12.5) -- way easier to give
If it were me I'd wait until the dog is 12 weeks old at least -- 10 weeks is still too young and it's more effective at 12 weeks.
There is no down-side to giving Benedryl before a vaccine. But don't ever get more than ONE vaccine at a time. You may want to check out Dr. Jean Dodds vaccine protocols.
