• Is it safe to give my dog Zyrtec? He’s sneezing and has itchy eyes. He’s almost 6 months and weight 42lbs.

    Hi Lauren,
    I recommend that you take your pet into see a veterinarian. The sneezing and itchy eyes can be from an allergy but it would be rare in a puppy. There can be other causes for this including an upper respiratory infection or an underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of his symptoms and the treatment that he needs after they have examined him. I do not recommend giving any medication unless directed to do so by your local vet.
