Dear Heloise: Owners of cats and dogs need to be sure to check their pet's collar every day, especially if they still are growing. An animal outside, if the collar is not checked at all, can have problems. There should be room for two adult fingers when putting on a collar, and it should be checked often for the pet's comfort and safety. -- Sue S. in Alabama
DEAR DR. ROACH: My son suffered seizures as a child and was diagnosed with benign rolandic epilepsy. At the time, we were told that he should avoid antihistamines, since they could trigger seizures. He was on medication from ages 8 to 18 (Dilantin), but has been both medication- and seizure-free for more than 10 years. He suffers from allergies, especially so because he's avoided any medication with antihistamines. Is it safe for him to take medication with an antihistamine, or should it be avoided for the rest of his life? --C.G.
