What are Antihistamines?

Antihistamines are prescribed to pets to prevent itching or to manage cats that over groom or scratch themselves. Antihistamines can also be useful to treat respiratory conditions or to sedate prior to car travel.

I have heard that this drug can have side effects, how will this affect my pet?

Almost all drugs have potential side effects (for humans and animals) but your vet would not prescribe any drug that has a high risk of side effects without informing you. Antihistamines affect animals in different ways, they can cause drowsiness to some while others may experience a dry mouth and retain urine for longer than usual.
