    I've never used zyrtec but I do give Samson benadryl. It's 1 mg for every 1 lbs so since Samson is 55 lbs I give him 2 of the 25 mg capsules. You have to get the benadryl that only has diphenhydramine as the active ingredient. Here is more info:

    Thanks ice been giving her benadryl but I think she's allergic to the dye the equate brand uses so I thought I'd ask my vet about the zyrtec @BabyDuke I know uses it hey so now I'm just wondering why he'd say no. Maybe he doesn't know much about it...

    If you have a Walgreens in your area, they carry a dye free diphenhydramine.

    Just remember that 98.34% of all people will make up statistics 86.27% of the time that lean towards their own opinion by at least 51%. Of course I'm not 100% sure about that...

    Hi there.. yes I would ask why.. we were told by the vet dermatologist at the university of Penn to give it to Duke.. He has been on it for over a year. his reasoning for switching from benadryl to zrtec was because he feels it does not dry their eyes as much and duke had had eye surgery when he was young? I prefer it much more. Benadryl makes Duke dopy and depressed and I do not see a difference in his personality with zrtec but it really helps keeping the itchies at bay.. I am curious too as to why he said not to use it?

    I called and asked the receptionist seemed irritated she had to ask. I have given her it before she seemed fine. But I have a prescription for 10mg I was hoping she would just say give her one or two pills lol violets 30 pounds now.

    My vet also reccommended zyrtec for Roxi's allergies over benadryl. I give Roxi one 10mg zyrtec in the morning (she's 40-45 lbs). It seems to be doing the trick! I have definitely seen an improvement. Her eyes aren't runny all of the time now either. I hope this helps! I know allergies can be so frustrating

    I was thinking of moving to Zyrtec myself. Gator and Gyps both have environmental allergies and right now it is soooo bad that even I have been just about dying (well, it seems like it anyway lol)

    Duke is 59-60 pounds.. the vet told us to give him two tablets every 24 hours.. it really does help.. You have to do what your comfortable with but I would def try to find out why he told you not to use? and yes allergies are such a pain. I feel like I could write a book on Duke's!
