I'm 14 and I have acid reflex what are some symptoms because I choked when I was sleeping and couldn't really breath i went to the doctors and got pepcid will that help?
Asked by Huey Fontanini 1 year ago.

Yes Pepcid will help with acid reflux. Take it according to the directions. Also can reduce reflux by not eating after about 8 pm - reduces food in your stomach; also sleeping on two pillows to elevate your head and shoulder. Carbohydrates especially baked goods like cookies or breads with higher sugar content seem to trigger reflux. You might find other foods that you eat that also trigger the reflux by producing excess stomach acid. For me, brownies (favorite food) if eaten in excess too late in the evening can cause it. Also pumpkin pie, another favorite. I'd also recommend since you are experiencing reflux to get some Gaviscon to have on hand- sometimes the reflux isn't fully controlled by the pepcid and you need to get immediate relief for it. Gaviscon seems to work best of the antacid products. For milder cases, Alka Seltzer makes a new chewable antacid/antigas that works well too; the antigas is good because gas can make the reflux worse. Good luck. Answered by Vella Buscher 1 year ago.

Hello Usually I would call my vet for something like this, but seeing it's Family day, the vet is not in today and I would like some feedback... So long story short, my cat (11 years old, indoors only) has been through a lot recently, such as chronic pancreatitis. She's slowly getting better, but she still isn't her usual self yet. She has days when she seems somewhat fine, but also days like today when she seems depressed, nauseous, and not eating. The vet says her pancreas is still inflamed and that she has a pseudo-cyst on it that may be aggravating her symptoms. We're giving her metoclopramide (injection), codeine (a gel we put on her ear) every day, and some digestive enzymes (powder) whenever we can. But even though we're giving her metoclopramide for the nausea and vomiting, she still continues to vomit. It's usually bile, or clear saliva-like vomit, or frothy white stuff, rarely any food. Before it used to be once a day, but the past day it's been more often (4~6 times a day). When we brought this up before, the vet didn't seem overly concerned, as long as her temperature is normal (which it has been). SO I haven't tried Pepcid AC yet for the vomiting, and would like to try it (seeing that the metoclopramide doesn't seem to be doing much at all). I know it's 1/4 tablet, 10 mg once/twice a day for a cat.... The only problem is that my cat has a low-grade heart murmur. I read on some sites that Pepcid may be bad to give if the cat/person has a heart rhythm problem. If anyone has any information, or have given Pepcid to a cat who has a heart murmur with success, I would be grateful! Thanks for your time. Answered by Alma Antoniuk 1 year ago.

My 4 month boxer must have ate something that is not agreeing with her. She woke up this morning, pooped normal, but vomited clear liquid twice. She sleeping now, which in the morning she's usually a devil. I hear noises coming from her stomach, and want to relieve her tummy ache. If I give her 1/4 of pill of pepcid ac, will that make it worse? Or should I just let her ride it out? thanks! Rob Answered by Lauran Deang 1 year ago.

Pepcid AC (famotidine) is a drug that should normally be administered under the advice of a vet. Normally the dose is 0.25mg per pound, but just to be on the safe side, I'd check with your vet first. Human drugs can sometimes harm dogs since they're not intended for use with them. When she wakes up, just offer her some water and maybe hamburger with cooked rice. I have French Bulldogs who will often feel better after eating that mixture. Good Luck! I hope your puppy feels better! Answered by Dillon Roes 1 year ago.

Do NOT give pepcid ac to your pup for this. You have NO idea why her tummy is doing this. If you don't know what the problem is you will probably make it worse diagnosing it yourself. That med is for reducing acid in the stomach and you have no evidence that she has extra acid in there. What if she IS trying to digest something tough and she needs all that acid? BTW Some dogs will vomit up some clear stuff when their stomach is totally empty. She might just be hungry and going through a growth spurt. Feed her a bit of her regular food and see how she does---keep track of her intake of food and water and her output. If she doesn't want to eat or vomits everything back up not long after eating give the vet a call. She could have eaten something (like a sock) and have an obstruction. If she does have something jammed in there and you give her an OTC human medicine you may create complications if the vet needs to give her meds or sedate her. She is probably just fine and hungry if it is just a small bit of vomit, so try a little bit of food and some water and see how she does....if she is obviously retching a great deal of fluid and bile and can't stop call the vet. FYI As a rule, if a dog vomits food up the advice is to withold food and water for a short time to allow the stomach to calm down. Answered by Simona Sarvis 1 year ago.

A lot of different things could be going on. *She could be allergic to her food. Try switching her to a higher quality gentle food. *She could be eating too much. Try feeding her in smaller amounts throughout the day. I agree with your decision to try and not give her pepcid ac. You could also try cooking REAL chicken and PLAIN rice. Mix just a tiny bit of carrots and peas in it for greens. You can also chop up wheat grass and add it in. Dogs eat grass when their stomach's are upset! If she doesn't get better, something else more serious may be going on. Start saving for the $40 vet visit and just the minimal amount of work to check up on her-- tell the vet about your financial situation and say you need to get the minimal amount of tests done for now. Remember, dogs would rather be in silent agony than upset or bother you, so watch her behavior and make sure she isn't in pain! p.s. pepcid ac is ok for dogs if you dose it correctly. however, it should not be used chronically. Answered by Rory Pater 1 year ago.

You can use tagamet, but I've never used pepcid (I don't have the ingredients in front of me to see if they're the same). I doubt that a 1/4 pill will hurt, or for that matter, help. It's such a small dose. My ridgeback puppy got a whole tagamet tab when she got into a bag of dogfood. 1/4 would have done nothing. Right now, I'd just let your puppy rest, keep water handy and don't feed for a day. Perhaps make some ground turkey, rice and cooked egg for a first meal. Offer just a small amount tomorrow and then another small amount a few hours later if she keeps it down. If she continues to vomit, I'd take her to the vet. Always better to be safe when it comes to puppies. Especially if you don't know what they got in to. Answered by Debroah Risner 1 year ago.

Don't give her any human medicine unless directed by a vet. Most vets have a very effective medicine that will calm a dog's stomach and make them stop puking. I would call the vet and check with them. Answered by Angle Purdie 1 year ago.

The rumbling is a good thing. Just supply a lot of fresh water and let the body clear its self of toxins naturally. She will be OK. It's never a good idea to try and stop the symptoms. It can actually slow the healing process. Answered by Jonas Copp 1 year ago.

Never give your pet an OTC medicine unless your vet has told you to use it. If she isn't showing any signs of improvement in a 24 hour time period, you need to have her seen by a vet to make sure she doesn't get dehydrated. Answered by Judy Rigo 1 year ago.

Best to take your dog to the vet. Dogs can often get a fatal type of bloating in the intestines. Best to be safe.She may not be able to get fluids past the bloated area and that is why the clear water is vomited up. Answered by Frieda Pritts 1 year ago.


My dog had diarreha yesterday and I gave him a pepcid (vet ok'd) but he still had some this morning.?
Everything else is okay (eat,drink, cool wet nose). How long is too long to let it continue before we go to the vet? Asked by Glayds Kuchar 1 year ago.

Pepcid is an antacid, not an anti-diarrheal, so it wouldn't have had much affect on diarrhea. Ordinarily, I would say 24 hours in a puppy and 48 hours in a dog (immediately if the dog is also vomiting). However, as we are heading into a 3 day weekend in the US, you may want to get him checked out today just to be sure you can find a vet that isn't going to be an 'emergency vet'. Around here, the emergency vet exam prices are 3x the regular vet exam prices. Answered by Lynn Stai 1 year ago.

I'd say give your vet a call today or tomorrow. Make sure that your dog keeps drinking so that he doesn't get dehydrated. In the meantime, try feeding him a bland diet of boiled chicken and maybe some rice. Stay away from rich foods and treats until his stomach settles. Did you recently change or switch his food? If so, this could be the issue. If the diarrhea is a regular occurrence, you may need to talk to your vet about different food allergies or supplements. Dogs, like humans, can develop allergies at any time and if you notice a sudden change, it's best to consult your vet for more information. You may have to switch to a food that has a different ingredient base. As for supplements, a nutrient deficiency can sometimes cause some common dog health problems. My dog was having issues with diarrhea and our vet put him on Dinovite. Since then, no problems. Answered by Vasiliki Bonaventura 1 year ago.

It is quite common for dogs to get an upset stomach after a change in diet. People tend to treat their dogs as humans and think because one day the dog doesn't eat the food left for it, it needs a change...so they change the diet and the dog ends up with a 'poorly tummy'. Always introduce new foods gradually don't suddenly chop and change their diets or you'll have many more episodes of diarrhoea to contend with. Having said that, if the symptoms last for more than a day or so get the dog checked out by a vet and be extra careful as to what he may be eating when you ain't around. Put stuff your dog shouldn't be eating well out of reach. BTW giving animals medicines developed for human use is not the cleverest thing to do and I'm surprised a vet would OK such an act. Would you eat his worming tablets? Answered by Larae Wenderoth 1 year ago.

Try feeding boiled chicken and rice until his stomach settles...it may take a few days. If it continues more then that, or there is blood, or the dog acts sick (lethargic, not eating or drinking) then take him to the vet. Make sure he gets lots of water as he is losing fluids. Answered by Cathy Roskopf 1 year ago.

The dog is either ill or just got a tummy upset. Try NOT giving ny food for 48 hours, to allowhis tummy to settle (but still give plenty of water). After 48 hours, start feeding plain boiled rice & cooked chicken (is very gentle on tummy) for 2 days. Then gradually re-introduce his normal dog food. Answered by Rochel Wuest 1 year ago.

Give him another pill and relax. Pepcid and other antidiareals will stop new diarrea but if there is still some inside the dog they cant stop that and that has to come out... Answered by Bernard Arelleano 1 year ago.


Pepcid Complete for dogs?
I have heard it is ok to give a dog Pepcid AC for upset stomach, but does anyone know if it's ok to used Pepcid Complete. I gave some to my dog the other day but he threw it right up. Not sure if he threw up from the medicine or just from being sick. Asked by Loraine Dotzler 1 year ago.

Active Ingredients Famotidine 10 mg-which is the drug name for Pepcid is fine! However the other ingredients listed Calcium carbonate 800 mg Magnesium hydroxide 165 mg (in each chewable tablet) are not something to be messing with. Especially if your dog has any kidney issues, and the Calcium carbonate if mixed with asprin can cause other medical issues. Inactive Ingredients Cellulose acetate, corn starch, dextrates, flavors, hydroxypropyl cellulose, hypromellose, lactose, magnesium stearate, pregelatinized starch, red iron dioxide, sodium lauryl sulfate, sugar.I wouldn't want any of these other ingredients in my dog either. So please ONLY use Pepcid-A/C at a dose of 10mg per 40lbs. It is also important to note that you should not use this as an one time thing. Give AM and PM for 3-5 days, then PM for 3-5 days, then every other day for 6-10 days. As always check with your vet! Answered by Valeri Desomma 1 year ago.

You should never give your dog human medicine without a Vet telling you to do so. They metabolize medicines differently than we do and you could do some serious damage without meaning to. Answered by Grover Stamey 1 year ago.

Well, I suppose it's okay to give your dog Pepcid Complete, if you want it to explode! Answered by Velma Nim 1 year ago.

Don't give any medications to your dog without first checking with your vet. The vet can tell you if the medication is safe and the correct dosage. Answered by Emmie Rasual 1 year ago.

Yes, the AC is okay. I checked with my vet and have given it to my dog before. Just make sure of the proper dosage. Answered by Ghislaine Bockelmann 1 year ago.

BTW Some dogs will vomit up some clear stuff when their stomach is totally empty. She might just be hungry and going through a growth spurt. Feed her a bit of her regular food and see how she does---keep track of her intake of food and water and her output. If she doesn't want to eat or vomits everything back up not long after eating give the vet a call. She could have eaten something (like a sock) and have an obstruction. If she does have something jammed in there and you give her an OTC human medicine you may create complications if the vet needs to give her meds or sedate her. She is probably just fine and hungry if it is just a small bit of vomit, so try a little bit of food and some water and see how she does....if she is obviously retching a great deal of fluid and bile and can't stop call the vet. FYI As a rule, if a dog vomits food up the advice is to withold food and water for a short time to allow the stomach to calm down. Answered by Celeste Knoepke 1 year ago.

A lot of different things could be going on. *She could be allergic to her food. Try switching her to a higher quality gentle food. *She could be eating too much. Try feeding her in smaller amounts throughout the day. I agree with your decision to try and not give her pepcid ac. You could also try cooking REAL chicken and PLAIN rice. Mix just a tiny bit of carrots and peas in it for greens. You can also chop up wheat grass and add it in. Dogs eat grass when their stomach's are upset! If she doesn't get better, something else more serious may be going on. Start saving for the $40 vet visit and just the minimal amount of work to check up on her-- tell the vet about your financial situation and say you need to get the minimal amount of tests done for now. Remember, dogs would rather be in silent agony than upset or bother you, so watch her behavior and make sure she isn't in pain! p.s. pepcid ac is ok for dogs if you dose it correctly. however, it should not be used chronically. Answered by Darren Warton 1 year ago.

You can use tagamet, but I've never used pepcid (I don't have the ingredients in front of me to see if they're the same). I doubt that a 1/4 pill will hurt, or for that matter, help. It's such a small dose. My ridgeback puppy got a whole tagamet tab when she got into a bag of dogfood. 1/4 would have done nothing. Right now, I'd just let your puppy rest, keep water handy and don't feed for a day. Perhaps make some ground turkey, rice and cooked egg for a first meal. Offer just a small amount tomorrow and then another small amount a few hours later if she keeps it down. If she continues to vomit, I'd take her to the vet. Always better to be safe when it comes to puppies. Especially if you don't know what they got in to. Answered by Charlesetta Thur 1 year ago.

My dog had diarreha yesterday and I gave him a pepcid (vet ok'd) but he still had some this morning.?
Everything else is okay (eat,drink, cool wet nose). How long is too long to let it continue before we go to the vet? Asked by Bobbie Pulice 1 year ago.

Pepcid is an antacid, not an anti-diarrheal, so it wouldn't have had much affect on diarrhea. Ordinarily, I would say 24 hours in a puppy and 48 hours in a dog (immediately if the dog is also vomiting). However, as we are heading into a 3 day weekend in the US, you may want to get him checked out today just to be sure you can find a vet that isn't going to be an 'emergency vet'. Around here, the emergency vet exam prices are 3x the regular vet exam prices. Answered by Annelle Christian 1 year ago.

I'd say give your vet a call today or tomorrow. Make sure that your dog keeps drinking so that he doesn't get dehydrated. In the meantime, try feeding him a bland diet of boiled chicken and maybe some rice. Stay away from rich foods and treats until his stomach settles. Did you recently change or switch his food? If so, this could be the issue. If the diarrhea is a regular occurrence, you may need to talk to your vet about different food allergies or supplements. Dogs, like humans, can develop allergies at any time and if you notice a sudden change, it's best to consult your vet for more information. You may have to switch to a food that has a different ingredient base. As for supplements, a nutrient deficiency can sometimes cause some common dog health problems. My dog was having issues with diarrhea and our vet put him on Dinovite. Since then, no problems. Answered by Gretchen Farrugia 1 year ago.

It is quite common for dogs to get an upset stomach after a change in diet. People tend to treat their dogs as humans and think because one day the dog doesn't eat the food left for it, it needs a change...so they change the diet and the dog ends up with a 'poorly tummy'. Always introduce new foods gradually don't suddenly chop and change their diets or you'll have many more episodes of diarrhoea to contend with. Having said that, if the symptoms last for more than a day or so get the dog checked out by a vet and be extra careful as to what he may be eating when you ain't around. Put stuff your dog shouldn't be eating well out of reach. BTW giving animals medicines developed for human use is not the cleverest thing to do and I'm surprised a vet would OK such an act. Would you eat his worming tablets? Answered by Sallie Imada 1 year ago.

Try feeding boiled chicken and rice until his stomach settles...it may take a few days. If it continues more then that, or there is blood, or the dog acts sick (lethargic, not eating or drinking) then take him to the vet. Make sure he gets lots of water as he is losing fluids. Answered by Larry Nazzise 1 year ago.

The dog is either ill or just got a tummy upset. Try NOT giving ny food for 48 hours, to allowhis tummy to settle (but still give plenty of water). After 48 hours, start feeding plain boiled rice & cooked chicken (is very gentle on tummy) for 2 days. Then gradually re-introduce his normal dog food. Answered by China Scharrer 1 year ago.

Pepcid Complete for dogs?
I have heard it is ok to give a dog Pepcid AC for upset stomach, but does anyone know if it's ok to used Pepcid Complete. I gave some to my dog the other day but he threw it right up. Not sure if he threw up from the medicine or just from being sick. Asked by Kylie Fiorentino 1 year ago.

Active Ingredients Famotidine 10 mg-which is the drug name for Pepcid is fine! However the other ingredients listed Calcium carbonate 800 mg Magnesium hydroxide 165 mg (in each chewable tablet) are not something to be messing with. Especially if your dog has any kidney issues, and the Calcium carbonate if mixed with asprin can cause other medical issues. Inactive Ingredients Cellulose acetate, corn starch, dextrates, flavors, hydroxypropyl cellulose, hypromellose, lactose, magnesium stearate, pregelatinized starch, red iron dioxide, sodium lauryl sulfate, sugar.I wouldn't want any of these other ingredients in my dog either. So please ONLY use Pepcid-A/C at a dose of 10mg per 40lbs. It is also important to note that you should not use this as an one time thing. Give AM and PM for 3-5 days, then PM for 3-5 days, then every other day for 6-10 days. As always check with your vet! Answered by Kali Ausiello 1 year ago.

I'm 14 and I have acid reflex what are some symptoms because I choked when I was sleeping and couldn't really breath i went to the doctors and got pepcid will that help?
Asked by Dewey Raisley 1 year ago.

Yes Pepcid will help with acid reflux. Take it according to the directions. Also can reduce reflux by not eating after about 8 pm - reduces food in your stomach; also sleeping on two pillows to elevate your head and shoulder. Carbohydrates especially baked goods like cookies or breads with higher sugar content seem to trigger reflux. You might find other foods that you eat that also trigger the reflux by producing excess stomach acid. For me, brownies (favorite food) if eaten in excess too late in the evening can cause it. Also pumpkin pie, another favorite. I'd also recommend since you are experiencing reflux to get some Gaviscon to have on hand- sometimes the reflux isn't fully controlled by the pepcid and you need to get immediate relief for it. Gaviscon seems to work best of the antacid products. For milder cases, Alka Seltzer makes a new chewable antacid/antigas that works well too; the antigas is good because gas can make the reflux worse. Good luck.

Hello Usually I would call my vet for something like this, but seeing it's Family day, the vet is not in today and I would like some feedback... So long story short, my cat (11 years old, indoors only) has been through a lot recently, such as chronic pancreatitis. She's slowly getting better, but she still isn't her usual self yet. She has days when she seems somewhat fine, but also days like today when she seems depressed, nauseous, and not eating. The vet says her pancreas is still inflamed and that she has a pseudo-cyst on it that may be aggravating her symptoms. We're giving her metoclopramide (injection), codeine (a gel we put on her ear) every day, and some digestive enzymes (powder) whenever we can. But even though we're giving her metoclopramide for the nausea and vomiting, she still continues to vomit. It's usually bile, or clear saliva-like vomit, or frothy white stuff, rarely any food. Before it used to be once a day, but the past day it's been more often (4~6 times a day). When we brought this up before, the vet didn't seem overly concerned, as long as her temperature is normal (which it has been). SO I haven't tried Pepcid AC yet for the vomiting, and would like to try it (seeing that the metoclopramide doesn't seem to be doing much at all). I know it's 1/4 tablet, 10 mg once/twice a day for a cat.... The only problem is that my cat has a low-grade heart murmur. I read on some sites that Pepcid may be bad to give if the cat/person has a heart rhythm problem. If anyone has any information, or have given Pepcid to a cat who has a heart murmur with success, I would be grateful! Thanks for your time. Answered by Maryln Renz 1 year ago.

Pepcid AC (famotidine) is a drug that should normally be administered under the advice of a vet. Normally the dose is 0.25mg per pound, but just to be on the safe side, I'd check with your vet first. Human drugs can sometimes harm dogs since they're not intended for use with them. When she wakes up, just offer her some water and maybe hamburger with cooked rice.

Best to take your dog to the vet. Dogs can often get a fatal type of bloating in the intestines. Best to be safe.She may not be able to get fluids past the bloated area and that is why the clear water is vomited up. Answered by Darla Bahrke 1 year ago.


My dog had diarreha yesterday and I gave him a pepcid (vet ok'd) but he still had some this morning.?
Everything else is okay (eat,drink, cool wet nose). How long is too long to let it continue before we go to the vet? Asked by Bong Juray 1 year ago.

Pepcid is an antacid, not an anti-diarrheal, so it wouldn't have had much affect on diarrhea. Ordinarily, I would say 24 hours in a puppy and 48 hours in a dog (immediately if the dog is also vomiting). However, as we are heading into a 3 day weekend in the US, you may want to get him checked out today just to be sure you can find a vet that isn't going to be an 'emergency vet'. Around here, the emergency vet exam prices are 3x the regular vet exam prices. Answered by Gigi Glaeser 1 year ago.

I'd say give your vet a call today or tomorrow. Make sure that your dog keeps drinking so that he doesn't get dehydrated. In the meantime, try feeding him a bland diet of boiled chicken and maybe some rice. Stay away from rich foods and treats until his stomach settles. Did you recently change or switch his food? If so, this could be the issue. If the diarrhea is a regular occurrence, you may need to talk to your vet about different food allergies or supplements. Dogs, like humans, can develop allergies at any time and if you notice a sudden change, it's best to consult your vet for more information. You may have to switch to a food that has a different ingredient base. As for supplements, a nutrient deficiency can sometimes cause some common dog health problems. My dog was having issues with diarrhea and our vet put him on Dinovite. Since then, no problems. Answered by Deane Hemphill 1 year ago.

It is quite common for dogs to get an upset stomach after a change in diet. People tend to treat their dogs as humans and think because one day the dog doesn't eat the food left for it, it needs a change...so they change the diet and the dog ends up with a 'poorly tummy'. Always introduce new foods gradually don't suddenly chop and change their diets or you'll have many more episodes of diarrhoea to contend with. Having said that, if the symptoms last for more than a day or so get the dog checked out by a vet and be extra careful as to what he may be eating when you ain't around. Put stuff your dog shouldn't be eating well out of reach. BTW giving animals medicines developed for human use is not the cleverest thing to do and I'm surprised a vet would OK such an act. Would you eat his worming tablets? Answered by Meaghan Bournazian 1 year ago.

Try feeding boiled chicken and rice until his stomach settles...it may take a few days. If it continues more then that, or there is blood, or the dog acts sick (lethargic, not eating or drinking) then take him to the vet. Make sure he gets lots of water as he is losing fluids. Answered by Chong Roddenberry 1 year ago.

The dog is either ill or just got a tummy upset. Try NOT giving ny food for 48 hours, to allowhis tummy to settle (but still give plenty of water). After 48 hours, start feeding plain boiled rice & cooked chicken (is very gentle on tummy) for 2 days. Then gradually re-introduce his normal dog food. Answered by Jaye Fetherston 1 year ago.

Give him another pill and relax. Pepcid and other antidiareals will stop new diarrea but if there is still some inside the dog they cant stop that and that has to come out... Answered by Adolfo Chaffin 1 year ago.


Pepcid Complete for dogs?
I have heard it is ok to give a dog Pepcid AC for upset stomach, but does anyone know if it's ok to used Pepcid Complete. I gave some to my dog the other day but he threw it right up. Not sure if he threw up from the medicine or just from being sick. Asked by Malia Pecatoste 1 year ago.

Active Ingredients Famotidine 10 mg-which is the drug name for Pepcid is fine! However the other ingredients listed Calcium carbonate 800 mg Magnesium hydroxide 165 mg (in each chewable tablet) are not something to be messing with. Especially if your dog has any kidney issues, and the Calcium carbonate if mixed with asprin can cause other medical issues. Inactive Ingredients Cellulose acetate, corn starch, dextrates, flavors, hydroxypropyl cellulose, hypromellose, lactose, magnesium stearate, pregelatinized starch, red iron dioxide, sodium lauryl sulfate, sugar.I wouldn't want any of these other ingredients in my dog either. So please ONLY use Pepcid-A/C at a dose of 10mg per 40lbs. It is also important to note that you should not use this as an one time thing. Give AM and PM for 3-5 days, then PM for 3-5 days, then every other day for 6-10 days. As always check with your vet! Answered by Monroe Knapchuck 1 year ago.

You should never give your dog human medicine without a Vet telling you to do so. They metabolize medicines differently than we do and you could do some serious damage without meaning to. Answered by Wally Leichtman 1 year ago.

Well, I suppose it's okay to give your dog Pepcid Complete, if you want it to explode! Answered by Carleen Vince 1 year ago.

Don't give any medications to your dog without first checking with your vet. The vet can tell you if the medication is safe and the correct dosage. Answered by Cassaundra Wabasha 1 year ago.

Yes, the AC is okay. I checked with my vet and have given it to my dog before. Just make sure of the proper dosage. Answered by Darline Barbarin 1 year ago.
