How much Dramamine can a 50 lb dog have? As a rule of thumb, though, you should give your pooch 3mg of Dramamine per pound of body weight. Meaning, a 50-pound dog would need 150mg of Dramamine, while a 20-pound pooch would only need 60mg of the drug. As with every pill out there, there are side effects.
Is Benadryl or Dramamine better for dogs? There’s some debate about which is better for dogs and car sickness: Benadryl or Dramamine.

How much Dramamine can I give a 20 lb dog? It is advisable to talk to your vet before administering any medication to dogs, but generally speaking, vets will prescribe Dramamine at a strength of around 2 mg per pound to be given no more than three times a day.
