Zyrtec dosage in dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Zyrtec dosage in dogs


Avatar f tn For sure. Cats are at least 10 times smaller than a SMALL adult human female. What is given to us is too much for such a small animal. For example: The amount of Zyrtec I was told to give to Akira is only 1/4 of the adult human dosage. This is much smaller than the children's dosage, which is 1/2 of the adult human dosage. I would never ever give medications to Akira without her first seeing her doctor. I do know that no one should ever give Tylenol to their pets.
Avatar f tn Benadryl is safe to use in dogs, and the dose is approx. 1mg/lb every 8-12 hours; I have used 25mg twice daily in pets slightly under 20# with no ill effects. In approx 10% of dogs, any antihistamine can unexpectedly cause excessive sleepiness, or paradoxical excitment, and if these symptoms occur, then the antihistamine is discontinued. Perhaps this happened to one of the prior rescue dogs when given benadryl.
689528 tn?1364135841 THANK YOU!!! Yes this is sooo helpful! I will def have to go out and get this Zyrtec or claratin. I didn't know you could give them these things, all I knew is that benadryl was safe and I gave him the children's kind so it wouldn't have alcohol in it. Pills are a pain but I'd rather give him pills now then deal with this itching. I feel so bad for him and I have a 10 month old who crawls all over and is covered in hair that's been shed.
460830 tn?1347219306 ), but I never have had any problem with taking a normal dose of Zyrtec...if I go ahead and take a Zyrtec, and it turns out that I did already take one, would it do any harm?
Avatar f tn My Son Is 3 and 40 pounds want to know if safe to cut dissolve zyrtec in half for propper dosage?
Avatar n tn have been tested i am severely allergic to all tree pollens grass and ragweed pollen mold and dogs..i have tried everything ( including the drops under your tongue) nothing reaaly helps i am tired of feeling like this all time..
Avatar m tn I took my dosage and quit hookah. 3 days after the steroids had ended I woke up in the middle of the night with the left side of my tongue swollen. I went to the emergency room and they put me back on steroids and benadryl again. 3 days after my steroid dosage had ended my hand and foot only on the left side started swelling to the point I couldn't walk. Got put back on steroids and zyrtec and some antacids.
850029 tn?1238857820 Have you switched to a different antihistamine? I thought about doubling my dosage but that will cost me $60 a month on top of the nasal sprays etc. My doctor put me on it last year when I started breaking out in hives all over. I realized I had the fragrance allergy. I can control the fragrance part of it but had chronic sinus infections due to my other allergies after I took myself off it.
Avatar m tn Can this be from the medication or is she in pain? The vet thinks she may have brain tumor, and I want to make sure she is not in pain.
Avatar f tn I can't see it being just your laundry detergent if its only happening in bed. You wash your clothes in the same detergent and they're in closer contact with your skin. Vacuum your mattress and bedroom as thoroughly as possible daily for a couple of weeks. ( buy a new mattress if you can afford to) buy and use a mattress protector, air the room as much as possible and lastly (youre not going to like this) keep the dogs off the bed.
Avatar f tn I have heard of it being used in dogs going through Chemo but I would not use that without consulting a Vet first. Have you tried Dramamine or Ginger? What breed and size dog is this? How old? You could try a ginger capsule in something like lunch meat, cheese or pill pocket. I have had success using Ginger Snap cookies about 30 mins before leaving and take some along with me. Fostered a Greyhound here that was going to an adoptive home 2 states away and was going to be driven there.

Avatar f tn Determining a dosage of tramadol for dogs is an exercise in futility. As with people, if the dog has a history of seizures it is important to let your vet know this, and they will likely tell you about alternatives. While the dosage amounts vary from dog to dog, the tramadol dosage for dogs can be put into effect by using the dog’s weight as the determinant. The usual range is .5 - 1.8mg per pound.
2169449 tn?1358489923 Benadryl is safe, but just a normal dosage and it's better to wait until after your first trimester to take meds...
Avatar n tn Has he been scratching frequently? Allergies can cause dry spots on a dogs skin, hot spots is there common termonology, and it is allergy season. My pooch would get them along with other itchy and swollen symptoms. Now he gets zyrtec everyday and the spots and other symptoms have all but disappeared. Check the skin in his ears, and around his belly. If you notice red blotches, I would suspect allergies. Consult a reputable vet to be sure. Good luck.
Avatar f tn 1) KEEP the dog out of your bedroom. We put a baby gate up in our door way when we got the puppy. I knew I was allergic to dogs and had just been diagnosed with asthma. Keeping the dog away from me was a priority. The dog rarely comes past our daughter's door. He is now 10. 2) Wash your hands well after handling the dog. 3) Vacuum and clean regularly. Bathing the dog often will help keep pollen off of his coat from bothering, but really does little for true dog allergy.
