Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, my name isXXXXX am a licensed veterinarian and I will try and help you as best as I can.
Hi I am Sandra
I am sorry to hear that Misty is not doing well. You can indeed give chlorpheniramine (chlorphenamine) while you wait for your vet to get back.
What dosage should I give him ?
he is 20 kilos in weight.
You can give 8-12 mg every 12 hours
There is the potential of this medication causing some mild sedation, so I would start with 8mg
okay that should be okay as my dog is rather nervous by nature taking him for a walk can be a night mare as he is scared of dogs, cars and sudden movements
That is why I am loathe to take him to another vet
I understand that. It can be very stressful for many dogs to visit a vet period, let alone a new vet
Thank you very much for your reply its been very helpful
you are very welcome. I wish you the best with Misty. Have a great day!
Shop only had Cetrizine hydrochloride can I give him that instead of the piriton
