An animals weight is converted from pounds to kilograms as follows: 1 kilogram = 2.2 pounds.  So a 14.6 pound dog converted to kilograms is: 14.6 divided by 2.2.  The answer is 6.6 kilograms. 
Benadryl is given at a dose of 1 milligram per pound of body weight.  So 1 milligram multiplied by 14.6 is 14.6 milligrams.  This is then divided by 50 milligrams per milliliter.  The amount injected is 0.29 milliliters. 
Contact your veterinarian before giving your dog any medication especially injectable medications.
