Our Doodle of the Day:
Our Tip of the Day:Just as with humans, our pups and kitties can take antihistamines for the relief of allergy symptoms. In dogs, for example, diphenhydramine (Benadryl) is often recommended to alleviate itching, scratching, sneezing, and a variety of other pesky allergy issues. In other cases, a veterinarian might recommend an antihistamine such as cetirizine (Zyrtec), chlorpheniramine (Chlor-Trimeton), or another. What's more, antihistamines, often Benadryl, can be used to help combat swelling and other symptoms in reactions to things such as spider bites and bee stings, or even to a delayed vaccine reaction. For this reason, even if your furbaby does not suffer from other allergies, it might be wise to always have some antihistamine such as Benadryl on hand. A quick administration of a safe antihistamine could potentially help save a furbaby's life in the event that an allergic reaction occurs when veterinary care is not immediately available. This all being said, keep in mind that various antihistamines will require different dosages, and will have different side effects and other potential risks. For these reasons, discuss the proper use and dosaging of antihistamine for your furbaby with your veterinarian. Again, even if your furbaby does not have seasonal or other allergies, you might still want to have knowledge of antihistamines in the case of an allergic reaction emergency.
