Has anyone's cat taken Chlortrimeton?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I called the vet and left a message if Fonzi can take Chlortrimeton.. I just feel bad because he's still rubbing his eyes.

I can't wait for his new food to arrive IVD.

My poor baby..

anyways, I was just wondering if it worked..

THANKS!

I do not know about Chlortrimeton. Benadryl is okay but only if the vet says so and tells you exactly how much to give.

You know, I asked about Benadryl and she said that they don't give it to cats only to dogs..

My vet suggested I try liquid benadryl to try to help Rocky's chronic runny nose. I did. Once.
He is pretty good at taking meds of any kind (lots of practice from a young age). I gave it to him, and he started running around, foaming at the mouth. Boy did I freak out! I was frantically checking my cat care vet book for answers, and discovered it was b/c he didn't like the taste of the meds and over salivated. He was fine, and I called the vet the next day- she said he could have it in pill form, cut up. I don't remember the dosage. I decided against it.

the only OTC med i have used dog or cat was Pepto. When i got Prue, she had BAD runs. 2 doses of Pepto in a baby feeding syringe mixed with water worked wonders. SHe HATED the taste too,lol. And yes i had called the vet before giving it, they actually suggested it before making a appt.

Be very careful with Pepto. It is very, very closely related to aspirin which is potentially toxi to cats.

Honestly, I wouldn't give my pet anything without consulting a vet just as I wouldn't give my child anything without consulting a doctor.

I don't feel I'm qualified to diagnose or medicate on my own and I'd never forgive myself if I did something that harmed my pet.

Oh gosh, no! I don't even know what that is or does... I just read it online and I called the vet about it..

I would NEVER ever give my cats anything unless authorized by the vet..

Pepto Bismol can be fatal to cats...it should only be given under direct veterinary supervision as it contains salicylate (Bismuth subsalicylate) and aspirin is Acetylsalicylic acid - a salicylate.

Here is a good article on use of Pepto Bismol in dogs and cats: click here
