Do the tablets have pseudoephedrine (see ingredients)?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Ingredients are 10mg of loratadine and lactose

Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 2 years ago.
Friend, unlikely for 100mg of Loratadine to be life threatening to a 54kg dog; you may see at worst mild gastrointestinal symptoms like vomiting or diarrhea; may see some sedation as well otherwise your dog will be fine. No need to be overly concern. Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
