    anitibiotics destroy the flora in the gut so its best to put it back with acidophilus use it for 2 weeks after antibiotics,the immune system is the key to a healthy dog it helps prevent illness ,karen

    Yogurt mixed in their food helps with the digestive system and thus helps with the immune system.

    @desertskybulldogs @BruceP @2BullyMama can anyone tell me how much/how many Zyrtec pills to give Tonka? The vet said he could have 50mg per day but the pills are 10mg each. Does he really want me to give Tonka 5 of those each day??!!! That seems like so much although he was up to about 4 benadryl per day before this. He is about 40 lbs. How many 10mg pills per day should I give him and in what kind of time frame?

    Also, I am happy to report that we spoke with our vet and let him know he should have told us about age being a factor in allergy test results as well as that Tonka should have been off Benadryl for a while first. He offered to give us a free re-test when Tonka gets a little older. Also, we are on day 4 of switching Tonka from NB Sweet Potato/Salmon to Fromm's Beef Fritatta and so far so good.
    1mg per pound for Benedryl.... with the Zryrtec, I would start with 20mg 2x a day and see how he does.
