• Can I give my dog claritin for skin allergies?

    Hi Karla,
    I recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian about this question. Claritin can be used for allergies in dogs. However, this may not be the best choice for your individual pet. The best medication and medication dose will depend on a few different factors including your pet’s age, weight, breed, and overall health. Your vet knows your pet’s medical history and they can give you the best advice on this.
