DRUGS AND OTHER ITEMS THAT CAN BE GIVEN SAFELY TO DOGS
 
Hydrogen Peroxide - in dogs this is like Ipecac.  Use it to induce vomiting after accidental injestion -  10 ccs by mouth every 15 minutes until desired effect is produced.
 
BUFFERED ASPRIN - use for pain relief or for the anti-inflammatory effects - give 5 mg per pound of body weight twice a day.
 
BENADRYL - great for allergic reactions, insect stings, severe itching.  I recommend the liquid version its much easier to give.
 
KAOPECTATE - used to stop diarrhead.  This is used instead of Pepto due to it containing aspirn which can cause stomach problems - give 1 cc per pound of body weight every 2 hours untill diarrhea stops.  Note: can cause the stools to become dark in color.  This is normal.
 
EPINEPHRINE - This is given to treat severe allergic reactions that cause anaphalaxis.   Use this as a last resort.  Try using the benadryl first.  This must be given very carefully as it elevates heart levels and if given in overdose can be very dangerous.  I would consult a vet when giving Epinephrine - give 1/4 - 1/2 or less cc injected intramuscularly.
 
DRAMAMINE - Used to combat motion sickness.  Note: This will make your dog very drowsy.  Also you can not use this product when shipping a dog via airlines - You can give up to 50 mg evry eight hours.
 
Ginger  - can also be used to combact motion sickness in dogs and is more gentle and natural
 
Mineral Oil- can be used to combat constipation in dogs - give up to 4 tablespoons daily until condition is reversed.
 
Canned Plain Pumpkin - can also be used to combat constipation in dogs - give 1 tablespoon twice a day until the problem is relieved.
 
Digel - Liquid form can be give to help with gas and as an antacid - give up to 4 tablespoons 3 times a day.
