Hello, thanks for your question today! I am Dr. Drew, and I am a licensed veterinarian. I'll be happy to help you in any way I can.

Dr. Drew :

I assume you are referring to the drug "piriton"

Dr. Drew :

which is considered safe to use in dogs.

Dr. Drew :

A 40kg dog would receive 4mg every 12-24 hours, as needed.

Customer:

Apologies for the spelling but yes it was piriton. Anyway, you have answered my question and I thank you.
