Are over-the-counter medications safe for my dog?

The answer is no. Human medication is not recommended for dogs and overdoses are a major cause of emergencies.

Key takeaways:

  • Pain medication is the number one cause of problems for dogs. Aspirin, Tylenol, and NSAIDS do not work and result in stomach ulceration and renal failure.
  • Antihistamines are another class of OTC medications used for dogs with mixed results.
  • Any medications should be provided with the directions of a veterinarian

Because canine dosages can differ from human dosages, it’s important to get directions specific to your pet if these medications are recommended.
