I have given benadryl to a pet before and it made her sleep. However, I can't take it anymore because it now makes me very agitated and nervous. Probably the same thing is going on with your dog. I would probably use a topical oinment for the itching. I have done this also and yes, the dog may lick it; but it never caused any problems. The vet can give you something that you can be sure is not toxic is licked. What kind os spider bite was it? A brown recluse bite is very painful and serious, the black widow is also a bad bite. That is all we have in TN to worry about. Any other spider bite would not be anything to worry about no more than a mosquito bite. Course in other parts of the country there are other venomous spiders that I have no knowledge of. I killed a brown recluse last night in my bathroom. Luckily I saw it before stepping on it and Rosie was trying to get it while I was chasing it with a rolled up magazine.
