Hi oxyaaron, I think Maso has pretty much covered the bases as to what a pet can or cannot take. I hope that you are considering using a vet to dispense your pets RX's. All animals may react differently to medications, especially cats who may be supersensitive to even minute amount of aspirirn. Medications are administered to animals pretty much the same way as humans. Take into account what they are suffering from, start with the smallest dose in the begining to establish tolerance, monitor your pet closely for the first 24 hours. Whenever I worked with animals I dispensed (under the vet's supervision) primarily phenobarbatol,ketamine and several different Nsaids. I have seen valium dispensed as well as benadryl. Be safe. I hope your pet feels better. Make sure you give double doses of TLC!. Fall Queen
Good morning oxyclean! Maso pretty much covered all the bases on this one. My vet always told me the only major difference between animal and human pain meds is the strength and quality controls in the labs that produce them. I was reamed out when I first joined about being insensitive about someones cat. Fall Queen was there too. Although she defended me. Hubby had accidentally dropped a 10mg valium and I called the vet cuz Lucy Loo snatched it up before it even hit the floor. He asked what her weight was and once again told me not to worry. Animal meds are about the same. She'll be very sleepy. Well, first she got a little rowdy, acting all big and bad (she's a jack russell) then she passed out. I kept checking her breathing but as the vet said she'll be fine. And she was.
