    Default Best antihistamine for runny nose?

    My poor guy has spring allergies; mostly a runny nose. He is really bothered grazing--he is constantly blowing out snot . I have him on histall but it doesn't seem to do squat. Any suggestions for something better. I did a search but didn't come up with much. Thanks!

    I've used Anihist with moderate success but it was for gooey eyes (allergies). You can go for Trihist but that's a vet thing. Anihist is OTC. Some folks swear by Cough Free for any allergy type stuff. I've never personally tried it though.

    Well, he doesn't have any cough, weepy eyes, or hives, just the runny nose. I will email my vet; I expect she will suggest the tri-hist which is pricey. But the decongestent may be what he needs.

    Ani-Hist am & pm, I'm pretty sure it will help.
    I had great success with that, dried my guy's snotty nose up every time.
    He's got no cough either, but when bad, his nostrils = a milkyway faucet.

    Histall, Tri-Hist did absolutely nothing at all.
