What is Hydroxyzine HCl?

Hydroxyzine HCl is an antihistamine used for the treatment of allergies in dogs and cats. Hydroxyzine HCl requires a prescription from your veterinarian, and is sold per tablet.

For:

Dogs and Cats

Benefits:
  • Effective against hives, itching, and rashes
  • Can be used as a mild sedative or tranquilizer for anxious dogs
How it Works:

Hydroxyzine blocks the effects of histamine in the body. Hydroxyzine also depresses activity of the central nervous system and is also used to treat anxiety disorders and tension in stressful situations.

Cautions:

It should not be used in pregnant or nursing animals. Hydroxyzine may cause drowsiness. Be sure to tell your veterinarian about any health conditions or other drugs your dog or cat may be taking.

Brand Name:
