Rated 5 out of 5 helps when there are fireworks
New years eve and 4th of July, we have a lot of fireworks that scare my dogs, I have given them benadryl for years to calm them down. Glad there is now a pet equivelant available.

Rated 4 out of 5 Great but dosage is high
This product brought immediate relief and was excellent; however for cats, it is a dosage that is too high. Recommended dosage is about 1 mg per pound. At 25 mg., this product needs to be given in half quantities for the 12 pound cat.

Rated 5 out of 5 Works for Humans and Pets
This medicine is just like benadryl (close to having the same ingredients I think) and I use it sometimes when I am out of my regular prescription meds. It also help my little guy as well. I notice he scratches less and his eyes doesn't tear as much. It cost the fraction of what benadryl costs. The directions of the bottle are intended for humans.

Rated 5 out of 5 Tried and True
I like this medication because it has been around for years, is effective in treating allergies in my dogs, and the price is reasonable. There are so many potential side effects in some of the other newer antihistamines, like Atarax, it's comforting to know my dogs can get the same relief with less risk and cost.
