Hi there- I am assuming the piriton tabs are 4 mg each? The dose would be about 5 tabs twice a day (if they are 4 mg tablets!)- but I have to tell you that chlorpheniramine (the active ingredient in piriton tabs)don't usually work well in dogs. Benadryl is much more effective. Write back if you want help with a benadryl dose instead of using the piriton.
