    Default How much Zyrtec to give

    Hi
    Since Red had is entropian surgery his eye has been looking good with very few tear stains. In the last week his eye started watering again and looks like yeast is coming back. He also rolls to scratch, licks his paws.

    I'm thinking he may have some airborne allergies and don't like giving Benadryl it makes him sleepy so I was going to try Zyrtec. He weighs about 45 pounds.

    He eats Fromm pork and peas and gets coconut once a day.

    Thank you
    Sue

    You can give Zyrtec 10mg twice daily or 20mg once daily. Fromm foods tend to have a lot of carbohydrates so you may be better off switching like a lot of members on this forum to a raw dog food or a dehydrated/freeze dried dog food like Honest Kitchen,Sojos, Grandma Lucy's,Vital Essentials etc.

    If your dog has been on antibiotics you may want to add a dog probiotic for a week eg. Proviable DC. Otherwise you can probably give low fat probiotic greek yoghurt, kefir , refrigerated sauerkraut etc.
