    My vet told me to give my corso Zyrtec to help keep her allergies down. Has anyone else done this!

    Yep I use it, only use the standard one, I give hank 1 tablet per day when he needs it, inside of a fish oil tablet. He thinks its a treat, he will eat fish oil tablet like candy. FYI use a sharp knife and cut a slit in one end of fish oil tablet, then push zyrtec tablet inside.

    I've never heard of giving Zyrtec. Most vets I've worked with recommend giving benadryl.

    This is good to know. I have been wondering. When you say regular you mean not the Non Drowsy stuff right? How about fastmelt tabs?

    Correct - don't get the one that makes u drowsy.

    Not sure about fastmelt. But a generic of zyrtec will be ok as long as the active ingredient is Cetirizine and the same dose.

    Actually I am using the regular type for the dogs now and it makes Jade a little sleepy which is fine considering I need her more relaxed with her lamness issue. I can't tell the difference with the other 2 dogs.

    It made hank a little drowsy at first but now it doesn't seem to effect him.
