It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

Diphenhydramine blocks the effects of histamine in the body. Histamine is involved in the body's immune response to irritants such as allergens and bug bites and stings. Diphenhydramine is FDA-approved for use in cats and dogs externally only; however, oral tablets and capsules are commonly recommended by veterinarians for cats and dogs.
