Human Medicine that is Okay for Dogs

Did you know that there is some human medicine that dog’s can have? There’s not many, but in a pinch they can really help alleviate your dog’s symptoms.

Also if your dog is kinda in between doses, always go with the lower dose just to be safe. source | bobandlush.com
