Yes, they can take Piriton tablets but please phone your vet (or their out of hours service) for a dose.

1 adult tablet is what I give mine. It can be any generic antihistamine, just the cheap one.

Please don't give anything other than the drug your vet named and please check the dose with a vet. It is worth waiting to get through rather than risk your dog's health.

My dog got given anti histimines from the vet to help the itching of his ears they were called certirizine and that i could get them in boots if needed if i couldnt get to the vets for any reason.
