I am sorry you are concerned about your dog getting an extra dose of Zyrtec. What was the strength of the Zyrtec? Was it 10 mg?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

The safe dose of Zyrtec in dogs is 1 milligram per kg of body weight; that would be 22 mg for a 50 pound dog. If he got 2 pills that were 20 mg, he should be fine. You might see some drowsiness, but probably not even that.

If these pills he got were more than 10 mg Zyrtec, please let me know.

There should be no problem of this does of Zyrtec taken with Rimadyl or Poly Chews.
