Severe congestion in ShiTzus


Our 12 yr.old female ShiTzu, 16 lbs. has a congestive heart condition, and a restricted esophagus.  She currently takes 1 Enalapril Maleate, 5 mg., Temaril-P 1/2  tab., 2X daily, and Previcox, 1/2 57mg. pill 2X day for arthritis.  Would adding an anti-histamine like chlortrimeton or benedryl help ease her cough and congestion?

There is no contraindication to your using one of those antihistamines for your dog, but it may not help.  The dose for benadryl would be 12.5mg,  2 to3 times per day.  The dose for Chlortrimetron 1 mg. twice daily.
