Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Now I assume you mean Cetirizine hydrochloride. If that is the case then you can use consider using this at a dose of 1 milligram per kilogram of Ruby's body weight once daily. Furthermore, if you suspect a bug bite, you can warm compress this lump a few times daily to reduce its swelling. Of course, if this doesn't settle over the next few days or she has any discomfort, then we'd want to consider having her vet check this to make sure there is nothing more sinister (ie abscess, hematoma, mass, etc) that needs additional treatment to clear for her.
I hope this information is helpful.
If you need any additional information, do not hesitate to ask!
All the best,
Dr. B.
