Dog-Friendly Over the Counter Medication


Did you know that many of the same medications in your own first aid kit can be used for your dog? Mainly, you need to determine how much to use by the size of your pet.

  2. nice chart, but take caution and see your vet as to whether or not your dog has any complications.
    Mine has Sterile Nodular- the body apparently takes care of everything by itself…….SO any type
    of medication, anything in the line of sanitation would kill her. About the only thing she can
    use is hydrogen peroxide

  3. I think all of these should be vetted by a licensed vet before giving any of these to a dog or cat. I have ALWAYS been told by many vets not to give aspirin to dogs or cats in any situation.

    1. Confirmation from the pet’s medical provider is always wise As per aspirin, I know that they act like an anesthetic for dogs, so if one wanted to use them, they should research dosages and take into account the pet’s weight, etc.
