Chlorpheniramine 4mg 83 83
Chlorpheniramine Inhalent/contact allergies are one of the most common reasons for veterinary exam for dogs and cats outside of yearly wellness exams. Such allergies result in much itching, fee chewing, secondary bacterial and/or yeast infections of the skin and ears. This frustrating condition often leads to repetitive vet exams, cortisone and antibiotic prescriptions and increasing expense. For those pets prone to these allergic conditions, it is often an excellent idea to try an antihistamine first such as chlorphenirimine, diphenhydramine or clemastine from 1800petmeds. As I discuss under these other product reviews, the overall effectiveness of anthistamines in symptomatic relief in dogs is approximately 25% in my experience, and thus they are most effectively used when combined with essential fatty acids like Super omega 3 from 1800petmeds, regular shampooing, and antioxidant therapy with supplements like proanthozone. I especially find the chlorphenirimine antihistamine useful and my number one choice in allergic cats at a typical dose of 1 or 2 mg twice daily. However to enhance effectiveness in cats, I will prescribe a fatty acid such as nordic naturals pet cod liver oil, or be well, or missing link to my feline patients. The only rare side effects I see with this inexpensive antihistamine is mild sedation and even less common rare digestive upset. However I always try anthistamine therapy first, in conjunction with other supportive allergy treatments, before reaching for more expensive drugs like atopica or using cortisone, which can occasionally have short term and long term side effects in some patients. My overall rating of chlorphenirimine is a 4. Its ease of use a 5. Its efficacy a 3.5, when combined with the supportive measures listed here and under my product review of diphenhydramine. 01/20/2009
Not Great My poor white boxer scratches so much. He has skin allergies and was getting prednisone shots from his vet and they did help for a little while. I wanted to try something else and thought this may help, but its just like benadryl. I guess he will be going back to the vet for something else. 11/29/2014
worried about giving it I bought this in the cat category... ...And got a free dog bone. Thanks for the gift but it was useless. This company should ask what type of pet it is before sending free items. My cat had been sneezing a lot (so was I) and I was going to give him this to help. There were dosage directions on this site so I ordered. Shipping was pretty quick and item was well packaged. I read the bottle and was a bit concerned when the label (directions for people) mentioned not to give it to children under age 6. Even over age 6, they recommended 1/2 a tablet. How can I feel comfortable giving that to a cat that's a bit over 1 year old. Fortunately, his symptoms went away so I did not use it. Any feedback on this? 06/19/2014
Excellent medicine. Poor Jerry (cat) was having an allergic problem for a long time, I took him to the vet, who said he was perfectly fine and that everything was just a grooming thing!!! Paid $75.00 to hear that. One of my daughters has a cat with the same problem and she told me the vet has given her cat an antihistaminic medicine that I thought my vet was going to suggest, at least, that for my cat. But nothing. For a long time I was thinking how to get the medicine without a prescription and voila, found it at Pet-Meds. Beautiful Jerry is now doing way better than weeks before, hardly any scratching and so far, I don't see any big side effect; I just see him calmer and happier without that constant scratching he was under for months (day & night). The only cons I see it that the pill is a bit too big and therefore not easy to put iin one pill pocket, I have to use at least 2 of them or give him only half of the pill which has been working good, too. Very happy with the results !! 06/09/2014
It works well I give this to my 3 pitbulls who scratch often. This product does work without making them drowsy. I noticed a lot less scratching and I also noticed between the fish oil and Allergy meds my Bish's eye secretion has cleared up. 06/02/2014

I have a mini dachshund with allergies. I have been giving her .25 of a tablet twice a day for the past 5 days. She has vomited twice today and was wondering if this could be a side effect of the medicine. Could she begin to have side effects on her 5th day of taking the medication?

My cat is having a hard time taking pills. He fights so hard against taking it, it turns into a very stressful situation. I'd like to crush it up. mix it with water and syringe shoot it into his mouth. Is there any issues with getting it into him this way? He is an 18lb cat and the vet said to take an entire 4mg pill.
Answer:Use pill pockets. The you nor your pet get stressed.
Answer:By mixing the medication with water, the active ingredient would most likely have a bitter taste for your pet will be exposed. Please discuss this idea with your vet. There is also a device called a pet piller that might be a better option.
