Description

If your pet struggles with seasonal allergies, Vetadryl may be able to help. These easy-to-feed, chicken-flavored, chewable tablets are specifically formulated to help with the unpleasant symptoms of allergies, and they may also help relieve motion sickness, as well as the symptoms of bug bites. Vetadryl is available in two strengths to easily dose your pet at the strength he needs for relief.

Uses

For use in animals where antihistamine treatment is indicated.

Possible Side Effects

Side effects that usually are not serious include: The most common side effect, which is often desirable, is sleepiness. Most animals will become tolerant to this effect with time and will not get as sleepy when given the medication. Cats, in particular, may become unusually excited while taking this drug. Dry mouth and trouble urinating (eg, straining) are possible but not common. Infrequently, diphenhydramine may cause gastrointestinal distress such as vomiting, decreased appetite, or diarrhea. You don’t have to be overly concerned if you see any of these signs unless they are severe, worsen, or continue to be a problem. Contact your veterinarian if this happens.

Drug & Food Interactions

No serious Food and Drug Interactions have been reported.

Precautions

For oral use only. Use under veterinary supervision. Common side effects may include sedation, ataxia, reduced coordination, gastric upset, thickening of bronchial secretions, and increased urine output. Do not use in patients with known hypersensitivity to diphenhydramine, other antihistamines with similar chemical structure, or any ingredient in the formulation. Use with caution in patients with glaucoma, history of gastric irritation or ulcer, bowel or bladder obstruction, prostatic hypertrophy, active or a history of lower respiratory disease (e.g., bronchial asthma), hyperthyroidism, seizures or cardiovascular disease (e.g., hypertension).

This product now requires a veterinary prescription to ship. Simply provide your vet's information during checkout and we'll follow up to confirm the prescription.

    Not a good choice for cats

    By Bojangles on Nov 9, 2020

    Mr. Bojangles has allergies and we wanted to try something new. The store bought version had to be cut and thus he got the taste in his mouth which led to severe mouth foaming and drooling. These are supposed to be chew-able. They aren't. Once again the taste of the medicine far out weighs the "chicken" flavor. Unless you are an expert at getting pills in your cat without getting them anywhere near his tongue or cheeks, you will have to deal with a foaming and drooling miserable cat for 5-10 minutes. The 3 stars are because they actually worked once all of the drama was over. We are definitely looking for something a lot more user friendly! Chewy, as always, is the best!

    Not what I thought I was buying

    By Candles on Jun 11, 2020

    I bought Vetadryl because my dog has to take diphenhydramine every day (75 mg twice a day). That's a lot of Pill Pockets, or hot dogs, or whatever medium you use to get the pills down (tossing them in meals is not ideal -- he can pick them out). So, I thought a chewable would be the answer. These things are no more chewable than the diphenhydramine (Benedryl) that you can buy in any grocery store, and they are much more expensive.

    I use it for grass allergy

    By f150 on Oct 23, 2019

    This is very affordable & much easier to give to my dog than the bitter Benadryl. Grass allergy: I start dosing in late Feb to get it into her system, with fish oil & vit E. If a little irritation develops, (inside ears) I wipe with Neem oil. I’ve used this for many years & this is the first time a prescription was required. Chewy made it very easy to order. I received it quickly.

    Tasty medicine

    By Cardul on Aug 14, 2019

    Finally a medication that my dog will take! My dog with pancreatitis will pick through her food and treats to find the pills and spit them out. These supposedly taste like meat. She won’t take them as a treat but will eat them along with her food no problem. No unusual drowsiness either. Wish every dog pill could be made this way.

    Not what you think as a chewable

    By Scott on Nov 9, 2018

    I bought these because my AmStaff is constantly getting mast cell tumors. As they're histamine related my vet thought a regimen of Benadryl might reduce the frequency of occurrence. Technically these are probably chewable tablets I suppose. But they're small and hard, like a typical small aspirin tablet and my dog just spits them out because they're too small to chew. Something larger like a training treat that's a bit soft would be perfect.
