My pet girls are really congested from the crazy weather. I’m worried it could progress to pneumonia, so thought I’d try Benadryl. They’re all 250+ pounds (conservatively!). Online dose guidelines say 1mg/pound but I can’t find a max dose (other than 75mg for a “mini pig”. Thanks

Benadryl pretty much works even with smaller doses. That's a lrg dose, IMO, at 75mg. I never had a pig sick, so ..... I'd dose like an adult weighing 250#. You'll know if it helps in a few hrs. :idunno

Pigs are compatible with us in many ways. That's why medically some parts are used in human treatment.
