Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yo!! have been using an expensive cream# My 6 yr cat, tiger cat, has had awful allergies for years. Like many here tried benefryl. Didn't help. A few things, helped, but now she's worse. Vet prescribed this in a cream. If your cat leaves you with no skin, could be worth it, but at 50.00. Now I'll come here. Trick with meds and cats: we are doing this for their good. Stay calm, don't talk in a sorry, baby voice. Pets, kids, elderly can use this against us. Lol lol they aren't dumb. Just be the boss, in it goes. Follow up with a mist favorite treat. Izzy highly recommends roast beef from the deli.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver My poor cat Spike has suffered from terrible allergies all his life with angry red welts all over his abdomen and the fur constantly chewed off his stomach and legs. Prednisolone helped but aggravated his diabetes and Atopica and Banaphan didn't stop the awful rash. This product is economical and doesn't taste so bad he vomits it back up and best of all the rash is going away and the hair is coming back. Thank you.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WARNING! DO NOT BUY! The vet recommended this for my cat because of his sneezing and some coughing and she thought he had allergies. I gave the dose the vet recommended to him every day for three weeks. I stopped when I noticed his excessive scratching, clumps of fur on the floor and his now lethargic behavior. Before this product ALL my cat had was sneezing and coughing and NOW he is lethargic with a skin condition. Now it’s back to the vet in the hopes we can fix his scratching problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gabrielle is a rescue and came with allergies galore! Not to sound gross but snot would go everywhere when she sneezed which was way to often. She is an older cat with very persnickety tastes... she doesn't know she is taking this medication. I crush it up and put it in her wet food at night... 1/2 a pill. What a difference! Amazing! Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked for me Roxy our cat was scratching and pulling her hair out. Tried Benadryl, taste was bad but it did work but if pill didn't go right down she would foam at the mouth. So I tried this product which seems to work. I only give her half pill in morning and half at night with feeding. I crush and mix with wet food and she seems to take it no problem. I also added more fish to her diet which also seems to help with some dry skin. Overall very happy with results and hair is starting to grow back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Results Jack, my 11-year old bichon-poo, has been plagued with severe environmental allergies his entire life. The only thing that would control his situation was oral steroids. After eight years on steroids he developed diabetes and pancreatitis . We had to remove him from steroid use. Initially we tried Benadryl to no avail. Our vet recommended Chlorpheniramine. Jack has been on this product for three months and he is like a new dog! The itching has ceased and his skin has cleared up. So far he has had no skin flares and his coat looks much better. The only side effect is more water intake. Jack weighs 24 lbs. I give him two tablets twice a day. I will continue to use Chlorpheniramine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Relief from itching We got Tia from a shelter one year ago, she's a spaniel mix, looks like a Field spaniel with short legs. She scratches and licks and gets hot spots and red rashes that really itch. She has no fleas and we bathe her with vet recommended shampoo almost every week. She still itches. I tired this, give her 1/2 a pill twice a day. As soon as 12 hours is getting close, since the last pill, she starts scratching again. I'm getting ready to buy more, it really decreases her itching and she has no sore spots, her hair has grown back in the bare places. I also give her a fish oil pill with each 1/2 tablet. If your dog has allergy itching, I recommend you try this. I can't afford to spend hundreds of dolllars having her allergy tested.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chlorpheniramin vs benedryl I had been giving Milo Benedryl half tabs but he didn't like the taste. The Chlorpheniramine doesn't have a strong flavor ( I tried it) and works to help his allergies. He is sleepy but not as sleepy as with the benedryl type allergy meds. I have tried other allergy meds that don't seem to work at all and this controls his itches well. He doesn't fight me about taking this like he did with the Benedryl like med.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work for me Bought this for my little guy who sneezes from allergies. Benadryl didn't work for him and I had high hopes from reviews for this. It made him withdrawn, sick (vomiting) and didn't help with sneezing or itching at all. Still searching for an alternative to prednisone....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works better than Benedryl My Rottweiler mix has had seasonal allergies her entire life. At it's worst she would bite and lick her skin in several places and was very uncomfortable. It got so bad she would develop secondary infections (fortunately mild, but very uncomfortanle for her) from time to time. Benedryl helped but would not stop her itching entirely, and also caused her to be sleepy. We decided to try Chlorpheniramine as a last resort before switching to an expensive perscription medicine. Fortunately, it's worked great! Our dog has been on it for 6 months through the worst part ot the allergy season and she's no longer bothered by symptoms. No apparent side affects either. While Benedryl is often the first choice and works well with most pets, sometimes Chlorpheniramine is better for a particular pet as we discovered.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't help. I bought this for my Pomeranian, who has allergies. It didn't help her. She sounds the same as she did before I started giving it to her. I started with a half tab, as recommended. She wasn't showing any improvement so I increased it to a full tablet. After a couple weeks, still no change. I ended up taking her to her vet but even with the prescription meds she was given, there still isn't much, if any, of a change. This year seems to be her worst ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Wonderfully!! Our cavapoo, Journey, has suffered with severe allergies for the past three years with it only getting worse each year. Her skin stayed a mess all the time, hot spots all over, bald spots from excessive chewing, licking, and scratching, constant paw licking and horrid ear infections. She was tormented day and night and it broke our hearts, we felt so helpless. The only relief she would get was when we would get desperate and our vet would give her a cortisone shot. She immediately would relax and become 'a normal dog' but this would only last about two weeks. We hated to go to the extreme of a shot because of the long term damage to her organs so I tried to keep her bathed as much as I could. On our last visit to our vet for a shot we discussed how to go on dealing with allergies and he suggested allergy testing...at about $500.00. Then more money to have a serum created just for Journey's allergies and then traveling to get daily shots and more money. He said there was not a guarantee that it would work as it didn't for some pets. We came home throughly confused as what to do next when I sat down to google dog allergies. And, then our lives, especially Journeys, were about to change forever when I came to 1-800-PetMeds and found Dr Dym's detailed information about allergies in dogs and cats. Wow! I was so excited at what I read and immediately ordered chlorpheniramine, proanthozone antioxidant, and the omega-3 that Dr. Dym recommended. Journey is not a good candidate for pill swallowing and quickly finds pills wrapped or hidden in food so we have a pill crusher for her. Every day I crush her allergy pill and sprinkle it on some yummy food, pull apart the capsule of proanthozone and sprinkle it on, and cut the omega-3 and squeeze it on. She gobbles up her food and meds without hesitation. The past five weeks have been heavenly for Journey and us....she is finally at peace with minimal itching....in fact, on a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 being her comfort is super fabulous.....I would say she is a 9. Before the meds I would say she was a 1 or perhaps 0. She has grown fur in her bald spots and her coat is looking thick and marvelous....and her skin looks incredible!!!! Thank you 1-800-PedMeds and a million thanks to Dr. Dym ~ Journey's comfort is priceless!!!

It is recommended to start at the lower dose of 1/2 tablet every 12 hours to see how she tolerates the medication. If she tolerates the medication but is still itching and scratching the next day, you may increase her dose, up to 2 tablets every 8 hours at the maximum.
