Resolved Question:

Can I give Baby Claritin to my cat? She suffers from severe asthma and I can't afford to take her to a feline allergist. If I can give her this medicine, how much? Thank you!

Claritin doesn't seem to be very safe for cats.

The D version and the syrup are not safe for pets at all.
