    Comments about Chlorpheniramine:

    I've used this product over the years - my last cat had "post nasal drip" (yes, it's true!) and this medicine took care of that. This kitty has very flaky skin and a little bit of wheezing at times. I use this in conjunction with AG-3 Omega 3 and the extra shedding and flaky skin, along with a sensitivity of her skin to touch, go away!

            I'lve tried other remedies for stopping my Bichon's chewing on her paws with no success. This product finally gave her relief and she no longer chews on her paws.
