Clemastine is an antihistamine for dogs and cats that is very effective in treating allergy symptoms, including itchy skin (pruritus) and skin inflammation of Atopic Dermatitis. Similar to and often more effective than other antihistamines, Clemastine acts by blocking the H1 receptor on tissues and suppresses inflammatory reactions caused by histamine.
Clemastine is a selective histamine H1 antagonist. It binds to the histamine H1 receptor, and blocks histamine, allowing for temporary relief of allergy symptoms.
