Prescription Allergy Medicine for Dogs

Help your dog beat common allergies with allergy medicine made just for him. Chewy carries lots of prescription allergy meds for dogs including daily allergy pills, antihistamines and anti-inflammatories. You can also order prescription creams and tablets for skin allergies.

Your vet can advise you on the best allergy medicine for the particular sensitivities that plague your pup. She may recommend a short-term dog allergy medication for seasonal issues or a long-term allergy treatment regimen for more persistent issues. Your vet can also advise you on whether a lower-dose puppy allergy medicine might help a younger dog with allergies feel better.

Allergy relief can sometimes be achieved by avoiding outdoor allergens or through a limited ingredient or hypoallergenic diet. Your vet may suggest these or other interventions before trying a prescription allergy medication. Allergies in dogs can appear as digestive issues, skin troubles, eye and ear complaints, or respiratory problems. Only a medical professional can accurately diagnose your dog and prescribe the right treatment for his issues.

You can find the medicines you need to clear up allergies and other health issues in the Chewy Pet Pharmacy. Order everything from prescription dog medicine to cat allergy medicine with just a few clicks and a prescription from your vet.

Your vet may have you try different products until you find one that works well for your dog.

What is the difference between over-the-counter and prescription dog allergy medicine?

The difference between over-the-counter and prescription dog allergy medicine is that you need a vet to prescribe the latter. The ingredients in prescription medications are more carefully controlled and regulated, and therefore, dosing may be more precise and possibly safer. Many prescription treatments are more effective than over the counter products, as well. Your vet can give you the most up-to-date information on what is designed to treat the allergies your dog has and what might work best for him.

What dog breeds are predisposed to allergies?

Many dog breeds are predisposed to allergies, including Boston terriers, boxers, Chinese shar-peis, dalmatians, fox terriers, golden retrievers, Labrador retrievers, Lhasa apsos, Scottish terriers, shih tzus, and West Highland white terriers. Any breed of dog, including mixed breeds, may develop allergies. Onset usually occurs between six months and three years of age, and symptoms may be seasonal or year-round.
