What is Hydroxyzine Pamoate?

Hydroxyzine Pamoate is an antihistamine used for the treatment of allergies in dogs and cats. Hydroxyzine Pamoate requires a prescription from your veterinarian, and is sold per capsule.
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. Hydroxzyzine may cause drowsiness. Be sure to tell your veterinarian about any health conditions or other drugs your dog or cat may be taking.

The usual dose in cats is 5 to 10 mg per cat every 8 to 12 hours. Hydroxyzine may cause drowsiness or dizziness.

Hydroxyzine depresses activity of the central nervous system and is also used to treat anxiety disorders and tension in stressful situations. Hydroxyzine may be used for other purposes than those listed in this guide.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving hydroxyzine to my pet: Tell your veterinarian if your pet has heart, liver or kidney disease. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.

How should this medication be given: Follow the instructions on the prescription label. If you do not understand these directions ask your pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Store hydroxyzine at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

What happens if I miss giving a dose: Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and give the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What are the possible side effects of Hydroxyzine: Seek emergency veterinary medical attention if your pet experiences any signs of an allergic reaction (hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat). Keep giving Hydroxyzine and talk to your veterinarian if your pet develops any of these less serious side effects; dizziness, drowsiness, or confusion; blurred vision or dry mouth; nausea or vomiting. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome to your pet.

cough and itchy skin Our dog has suffered from allergies for a long time. Vets have told us that is was kennel cough and gave us some powerful antibiotics. Did not help at all.After tireless efforts and no results we gave up until our neighbor recommended a vet he goes to. He put our dog on this product and Omega 3 vitamins. Our dog is at peace now - his coughing is just about non exsistent and the scratching has stopped. This is the best treatment for our dog. He can live a better life. He is not bothered by any side effects. 04/12/2012
Oscar and Poko Recommend Like many doxxies, my poor babies have seasonal allergies. This product has been helpful in toning them down. The boys sneeze less and, with the help of doggie shirts, Oscars summer rash is under control. 01/02/2012
works well on itchy skin This drug works pretty well for my dog's itchy skin. I found that it works much better when given with a fish oil supplement (omega 3 fatty acid pill). After about a month, I can see a huge difference in my dog's skin. She is not as itchy and her coat is much more silky. Her skin is not as red and her rashes have cleared up completely! I just hope it stays this way, although the vet did say that she will most likely be on this medication for the rest of her life. At least its quite inexpensive through 1-800-petmeds! 07/13/2011
Can be helpful All those with "allergic" dogs - please be aware that most dog foods have high carb content which promotes yeast which leads to itchiness, paw licking, red paws, irritation, ear infections, dull coat, hot spots - any or all of these things! So FIRST make sure that your dog is not consuming high carbs/low protein. You should generally be feeding your dog about 35% protein. Many popular and/or lowcost foods are only about 20-22%! Change over gradually (a week or two) and then most people notice improvement in about 4 weeks or so, and things will just get better from there! Organic dog food is NOT necessarily good. Protein content is very important, with carbs about 40% maximum. (Most better foods are NOT at the big box stores, by the way.) Good luck! Many of you will find that this is what your dog has needed! Enjoy! 05/22/2011
Works wonders for calming The vet gave us this due to our Dobie being nervous (had 4 different, terrible parents--starved & abused) when our schedules change or the weather gets windy, etc. They work sooo well for him. Sleeps peacefully yet on walks or at the dog park he plays & enjoys himself to the fullest. Would recommend for any "high strung" or abused or nervous pet. 11/17/2010

No. Both Benadryl and Hydroxyzine are anti-histamines. Your pet could experience severe side effects such as dry mouth, a rapid heart rate and increased blood pressure well as trouble urinating.
Please consult with your veterinarian to report your pet is still itching and has a rashes.
