|If you're brushing yourself, using benidryl (sp?) is probably ok. Our vet even suggested it for flying, rather than a tranquilizer. He felt it was better, because it relaxed them, without the sedation. We use the melt on the tongue children's type, so they can't spit it out. Chester, who's twice my size at 10 pds, gets a whole one, and I get a half, but ask your vet what amount he thinks is best for your pet.
But if you're taking your pet to a groomer, then nothing. The groomer should know how to deal with a biting dog, and a good one will work with the dog until they both know who's boss, without the dog being harmed, or terrorized.
I may be small, but I bit and scratched when anyone tried to groom me, but it didn't take my groomer long to stop me from doing that. And I like her, I really do, she's much better at it then my people ever were!
