    Hey guys, i was just wondering if you can give piriton to 7 month old puppies. My two girls have watery eyes, are sneezing and slightly itchy, but my vet is insisting on it being " dry eye", but before i take them back to the vet and get charged another £100 i want to try piriton. They have the same symptoms as my last dog who did have seasonal allergies. If i can give them piriton how much will i give them. They weigh 8.8kg and 7kg.
    Thanks Cheryl

    I think you would need to check with your vet to make sure but fairly certain I gave my one that sort of weight half twice a day but it made her too sleepy so just gave it at night. I do not think you should take recommendations on dosage from other dog owners though just in case there is some reason your dog should not have it. A phone call should suffice.

    Yes I too think you need to check with the vet first.
