    I'm curious as to what everyone sees in their dog following giving them a Zyrtec ...................What symptoms is the Zyrtec helping? No one seems to be talking about that.
    As for me .... I have used Benadryl and Zyrtec, and personally I do not see a change in Maximus' symptoms at all - he still sneezes, and he still has a runny nose and his eyes are red,
    so I don't see either of these medications working for him ..............the Benadryl does not make him dopey or drowsy !

    I'll be watching this thread since Truman has some environmental allergies that we haven't been able to get to the root of yet and he doesn't do that well with Benadryl. It makes him hyper. And he's already hyper.

    one thing that our dermatologist told us that in order for any allergy medicine to work you have to give it every 24 hours.. so Duke gets two zrtec every morning after breakfast.. once I began this his eyes were much dryer.. wrinkles not wet , no more " butt" spinning..or dreadful scratching.

    he also told me ( when I did not like the idea of giving it every day ) that it was pointless to give " as needed" it is a medicine that builds up in their bloodstream and when on regimen keeps things at bay..he told me NOT to worry that he gives to his dogs .. I must say when I started this.. Duke was so much better. Hope this helps.. oh I don't know why he also told me to give it in the morning?? that is why we give after breakfast.. and the dosage is DOUBLE the adult dose.. so that is why we give two tablets.

    Violet gets hives daily and red around her eyes super pink hot ears and very pink belly after giving on zyrtec the pinkness is very minimal. I believe violet was having major issues with the dye in the equate brand benadryl. I think I might try one and a half tomorrow see if all her pinkness gos away

    @BabyDuke no I haven't her back had a bunch of bumps and hair loss last week. When I started switching her from Lamb and rice to salmon sweet potatoes and pumpkin she got a few more bumps and stinky gas. But it is now looking better and her hair is growing back. Her coat is normally very nice. But id like it to be nicer. How do I give her the fish oil and what kind would I give her?
