    Default Zyrtec for allergies

    My dog Red has been eating Fromm gold beef frattata for at least 6 weeks now. He is still licking his paws, scratching at his eyes and ears and licking his paws

    He gets ACV in his water. He won't eat his food if I put coconut oil on it but he will eat yogurt. How long before you notice a change when you give them yogurt?

    If I give Zyrtec do you give the 12 hour one and do you give only 1 pill a day? He weighs about 45 pounds.

    Thank you

    Zyrtec is one pill a day

    For food results can be immediate or take a few weeks.... what food was he on before the Beef Fritatta and how how is he?

    He was on taste of the wild wetlands. Still licking his paws and rolling around on carpet or grass to scratch. I use the malceptic wipes on his feet and he likes that but goes back to chewing

    Could be more environment than food? We just did Lambeau allergy testing (blood panel) and his paw licking and ear issues are all environmental

    My vet was anti-Zyrtec. Recommends Claritin or Benedryl, just an FYI!

    I would lean towards environmental allergies rather than the food. Food allergies will usually cause skin issues (sores, tear stains, loss of fur) vs constant itching. Itching sounds more like environmental issues...

    My vet recommended Zyrtec and one every day and if his allergies are really bad one every 12 hours
