We treat our dogs as members of family. We prepare their meals alongside ours, and we incorporate their exercise into our own routine. It makes sense that we would consider using human medications from our medicine cabinet for a sick pup. Check with your veterinarian for dosages and safety before administering any medication, but these human medications can be used safely on dogs.
Always consult with your veterinarian before giving any medicines to your dog. Your veterinarian can advise on dosage. You might also consider adding the toll free numbers of 24-hour animal poison control to your cell phone, as well as your local 24-hour veterinary hospital.
