OTC Remedies


Recommended Posts

Well I was looking at the dog's cabinet yesterday and realized how much I have learned over the years about what to use for everyday remedies. So here is a list, and I hope it helps you!

Allergies, itchy skin, hot spots: Benadryl, 1 mg/pound (thanks, D.O.!)
Hot spots, insect bites: Gold Bond Triple Action Medicated Powder
Cuts, abrasions: Peroxide, Neosporin
Diarrhea: Immodium, one adult tablet, also instant white rice.
Chronic stomach problems: plain yogurt, 1 tsp. with each meal
Chronic urinary problems: cranberry extract supplement, 1 tablet with each meal
Pain associated with arthritis: buffered aspirin, one
Dry, dull skin/coat: olive oil, 1 tsp. with each meal

***this list is intended for informational purposes only; none of these statements are intended to substitute for the advice of a veterinarian and you should ALWAYS talk to your veterinarian about your particular dog's needs***
