Zyrtec For Dogs: Dosage
Before we kick off this section, please note that any of these dosages are scientific estimates at best.
You should always consult your veterinarian
before you start a course of treatment for your dog with this medication or any other, as they will tell you the exact dosage you should give your dog and all other details you should know.
Generally, cetirizine is taken orally, in a tablet form, once a day. The required dosage is mostly determined by your dog’s weight.
The standard recommended Zyrtec dosage for dogs is:
- Dogs over 10 lbs: Give one 10mg tablet once daily
- Dogs under 10 lbs: Give one-half of a 10mg tablet once daily
You can feel free to give Zyrtec to your dog alone or with some food, whatever works best for them.
If you suspect that your dog has overdosed on Zyrtec, immediately contact your veterinarian so they tell you the necessary steps you have to do.
