Human Medications That
Can Be Used on Dogs

Human Medications That Can Be Used on Dogs - First of all, before you give any animal any kind of medication or supplements, please consult with your veterinarian about dosages or any kind of side effects ahead of time.



In fact, if I were you, I would talk with my veterinarian ahead of time and find out exactly what dosages would be needed for my own German Shepherd - before I needed to use them on him/her.
