Hydroxyzine HCl is an antihistamine that blocks the effects of histamines in the body. It can also be used to depress the activity of the central nervous system. This medication inhibits the action of histamines by preventing swelling, itchiness, hives, rashes, anxiety disorders, and tension in stressful situations. Hydroxyzine HCl binds to H1 receptors, a type of histamine binding receptor, that affect small blood vessels and smooth muscles. When histamines bind to H1 receptors, it causes blood vessels to dilate, and fluid begins to leak out, causing swelling and itchiness. Hydroxyzine HCl prevents the histamines from binding to the H1 receptors, providing relief for your pet.

Keep out of the reach of children and pets. Do not use in pets with a known allergy or sensitivity to hydroxyzine HCl. Do not use in pregnant or lactating animals. Hydroxyzine may cause drowsiness. Administer with caution in pets suffering from glaucoma, lung disease, heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, or prostate enlargement. Hydroxyzine HCl may interact with some other medications. Therefore, inform your veterinarian if your pet is on any other medications.

Keep giving Hydroxyzine and talk to your veterinarian if your pet develops any of these less serious side effects; dizziness, drowsiness, or confusion; blurred vision or dry mouth; nausea or vomiting. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome to your pet.
