Hydroxyzine HCl 10 10
Hydroxyzine Inhalent/contact allergies in dogs consisting of excessive biting of feet, scratching of ears and behind front legs, as well as secondary bacterial or yeast infections are amongst the most common problems seen in everyday veterinary practice. This is one of the most frustrating problems to deal with, as not only are animal guardians often kept up at night by their pets symptoms, but our canine companions are indeed quite uncomfortable when their allergies flare up. While difficult to cure, trying different anthistamines such as hydroxyzine for a 10-14 day trial period is often worth a go, as if symptoms are relieved, such meds are usually quite safe to use long term. If the above symptoms are present, I find that combining an antihistamine like hydroxyzine with an omega 3 fatty acid from 1800petmeds greatly increases odds of helping allergic pets when used over time. Also periodic shampooing once to twice weekly in allergic pets can help remove contact allergens as well. I usually find that approximately 25 to 40% of dogs will respond to hydroxyzine, in a lessening of their symptoms. The only rare side effects I have seen are occasional digestive upset and more rarely excessive sedation. I give this product an overall rating of a 4 with ease of use/efficacy a 4 as well. 08/02/2009
Great ! My dog Oso, was always crying, vomiting and scratching his skin and I never knew why. I took him to see Dr. Gilley and he prescribed 25m of hydroxyzine. Once I gave it to him he was not vomiting, crying and scratching his skin. He is back to being a happy healthy puppy. 10/23/2013
Hydroxyzine My 2 year old Jack Russell was constantly vomiting and would not eat food. The Dr. put her on Hydroxyzine to help calm her belly. For the first year she was taking one tablet every day to prevent her from getting sick. Now I am able to get away with 1 tablet per week, If she goes any longer than a week without the pill she gets sick. She is doing great as long as she gets her pill every week. 11/10/2012
Works well for my dachshund's allergies My poor dachshund has terrible allergies which also gave him secondary bacterial and fungal infections. Initially the vet put him on a 15-day course of Prednisone along with antibiotics and an antifungal. He is also now on a hypoallergenic dog food. At the follow-up appointment his coat was doing a lot better with much less shedding and dandruff, but he was still chewing at his paws and had a stuffy, runny nose. The vet put him on Hydroxyzine 25mg twice a day; he mentioned that hydroxyzine is the strongest non-steroidal antihistamine available for dogs (long term steroid use is not recommended). The combination of long-term hydroxyzine therapy and the hypoallergenic diet brought huge relief to my dog. 05/29/2012
Not Recommended My wife and I had to put our 3 year old beagle, Frances, down five days after being prescribed Hydroxyzine. Frances was in excellent health prior to being prescribed the drug. Within twenty-four hours of taking the medication Frances had difficulty eating and drinking. Forty-eight hours later Frances could no longer swallow or close her mouth, and developed diabetic symptoms. The veterinary clinic where we took Frances consulted a neurologist before providing us with additional information to assist us in making a decision. Based on the information provided which pointed to immediate suffering with a poor chance of a full life, we decided to end her suffering. I blame no one for what happened to Frances. In fact I really do not know what happened. My grandfather was a veterinarian in the early 1900s when medicines were far inferior to what is available today. I am sure he had some sleepless nights after losing some farmer's horse or dog. Today we are blest; medicines are far superior. It is rare, but sometimes the worst can happen. God bless 10/08/2011

Answer:Both strengths are white tablets.
My puppy had itchy skin which caused him to scratch so much that the fur on his back legs was almost gone. The Vet is having him try 10mg Atarax 2x/day. Seems my puppy is a little more nervous around loud noises after he started Atarax. He's been on it 1 week but since he's now 18 wks I don't know if its just him changing because he's older,
Answer:Thank you for your question. The most common side effects of Atarax are drowsiness and dizziness. There are no documented cases of behavioral changes while taking this medication. Consult with your veterinarian if you do not see an improvement.
