Hi,

Just been on the hunt for some piriton tabs for my dog as reccomendwd by the vet and came across these.

They are human tablets!! (vet says dogs can have same tabs!)

When I went to checkout it said shipping was free so this price includes delivery.


For the symptomatic relief from all allergic conditions including nettle rash, hives, heat rash, prickly heat; reactions to food, medicines or insect bites and stings and hayfever.

Good grief you will sleep forever with these, do take care with them for both human and doggie intake.
Piriton is the traditional med for hay fever overtaken by fancy non sedating meds now but one thing they sure do work. :)

Oh god that sounds scary!

He did say it might make the dog drowsy! So these are piriton without the non-drowsiness??!

I take piriton to sleep. I took them once for an allergy and now i take one every night. They last about 4 hours. Great for flights too but not good if you have to walk anywhere. :D

Yes, they probably will make the dog (and you if you plan to use it) sleepy, but nothing to worry about really. It will probably make him/her just a bit less energetic that's all. Probably not a good idea to drive on them though (you not the dog lol). They last for about 6 hours so some people find it a bit of a hassle taking it four times in day to cover the whole 24 hours.
(But don't use them to help you sleep - that's not what their licensed for and you don't know what effect they will have in the long term)

You can now get get non-drowsy tablets containing loratidine or cetirizine (brand name is Piriteze I think) that last 24 hours. Have to say though I'm not sure if dogs can take these though.

Good deal for those who either aren't affected by the drowsiness or don't mind feeling a bit groggy though :)

Do these have an expiry date or last forever?

Thanks

I was told to get piriton by the vet so I assume that's all he's allowed. Tbh he's only 14 mth so if they make him dopey that can only be a good thing!

Hot top - not sure it may say on the website but mine haven't been delivered yet so not sure

They will have an expiry date and usually most tablets have at least a good a few years expiry on them (~3), but I dunno if these are old stock and expiring sooner (hence the cheap price). It's a reputable online pharmacy registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council so it's unlikely they will sell stock that will soon expire but I guess you never know until you have the pot in your hand.

Either way at ~2p a tablet its still a good price even if you end up not using them all within the expiry.

Bought these last year for my dogs hayfever. Still have about a 1/4 tub left.

She has 1 in the morning and 1 in the evening to stop her paws from itching caused by the grass pollen.

Think I could buy some more, should last another 2 seasons at least.

Dogs can have quite a few human medicines, because of their metabolic rate they normally need a much higher dosage, up to 8x according to my vet!!!!
Quadrille#15
Excellent price, and they do (nearly always) work, while cetirizine and loratidine don't suit everybody (you could get 14 tabs of those at Wilkinson for 75p a couple of weeks ago - take one per 24 hours).

But Piriton (chlorphenirimine) can make you seriously drowsy, and may not last more than four hours or so.

Hot for those who like 'em!

Eye drops are another thing that can be used for animals, the human meds seem to work out cheaper :)

Just in case anyone is still following this, I ordered some the day this was posted and they arrived 2 days later. The expiry date is 9/2013 so good for a couple of years. Overall, v pleased!
