Rated 5 out of 5 by oldlady Works better than Benedryl
I wish this was not a prescription. However, it works better than other antihistamines that I have tried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hildi1 Prescribed by specialist to control itching on my dog.
I've used this med for itching on my mini schnauzer. Vet prescribed it and it helps a great deal along with weekly bath, right diet and topical sprays as needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gardengirl The capsules are a better value than tablets
The capsules are much cheaper but we do have to break them open and spread on our pet's food. We are not sure if he would eat it in the capsule form. It is tasteless so it doesn't change the flavor of his food. Good value

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer better than what he had been taking
My golden was switched over to hydroxyzine about a year ago when the other drug he was taking was too hard to get. This works just as well if not better and has less side affects. So I'm sure he is happier!!!
