Nobody wants to see their furry friends in pain. Sometimes when it’s something like a minor ache or cough, it can be temping to reach into the medicine cabinet and give your dog the same pain relievers you’d take instead of dragging him all the way to the vet.
As easy as it seems to be, you could be taking a bigger risk with your dog’s health than you realize. Although we’re all flesh and blood, a dog’s body is not the same, and human medications – even over-the-counter medications – can hurt him more than they help.
Check out this great infographic from PetMD to learn how the over-the-counter medications in your home could hurt your dog, and be sure to talk to your vet about any questions you might have concerning his health and well-being.
