Dogs are special: they part of the family and our best friends.  No one esle gets that special status.  It is natural, therefore, for us to take really good care of their health.

When it comes to a dog that suffers from allergies, the disease is essentially the same as when a human suffers from allergies: Itis an inappropriate overreaction of the immune system to allergens in the dog’s environment, and may include a particular allergen.  Your dog may be allergic to you cat or YOUR DOG MAY ALLERGIC TO YOU!

Flea hypersensitivities are the most common allergies in dogs, although, during a particular season, they also suffer from allergies when exposed to an allergen such as pollen from autumn trees or pollen from spring flowers.  A reaction to an allergen can be visible in any part of the dog’s body.

Allergy symptoms can make life miserable for both of you. Currently, many companies have in the market several allergy medicine for dogs. 

First, you need to find what is the cause of your dog’s allergies and then find the best allergy medicine to reduce his allergy-induced misery

The most common allergy medicine for dogs are Benadryl (diphenhydramine), Zyrtec (cetirizine), Claritin (loratadine).These are great, easy-going drugs used for common cases of the itches or the first sign of hives.

Other OTC antihistamines may also be effective for allergic reactions in pets, but Benadryl, Zyrtec and Claritin are most commonly recommended.

Be warned: Some pets will feel the sedating effects more than others, especially those who are also taking mood-altering drugs, certain pain relievers and seizure medications. You should also note that the dosage can be significantly different for pets than for humans, so call your vet first and ask if it’s OK.
