Q. What kinds of OTC allergy meds can I give my Jack Russell ?

A. You can give antihistaminic drugs after consultation with specialist but they can have poor effect in animals. It's better to find the allergens and avoid them ( by proper diet, fleas control) or administer other forms of therapy ( shampoos, suplements with fatty acids, oral meds)
