Pets and Over-the-Counter Medications
pets and over-the-counter medication
Many pet owners wonder whether it's safe to dispense over-the-counter, "people" medicines to their cats and dogs. The fact of the matter is, some human medications such as Tylenol (acetaminophen) can be toxic and even lethal to pets.
Pound-for-pound, doses for animals are not always the same as for people. You could very easily overdose or underdose your pet. In addition, your pet may have a medical condition which could be worsened by the use of some human medications.
As a rule, you should never use over-the-counter human medications on your pet unless you are advised to do so by your veterinarian. If your veterinarian does prescribe them, be sure to follow the dosage instructions exactly as written.

Traveling with Pets
traveling with pets
While your pet is certainly a part of the family and it can be a joy to bring them along for family trips, it is crucial to be prepared. Make sure you know all the ins and outs of traveling with your pet – depending on where you're going, how long you'll be gone, your method of transportation, health considerations, and so on – before you undertake the journey.
  • pet travel tipsFirst and foremost, check to make sure wherever you are staying allows pets and ask about any restrictions and fees.
  • Check for a list of emergency veterinary clinics in the area of your destination and along the route.
  • Get up to date on vaccinations before you leave. Rabies vaccinations are a must for all travel abroad, and for returning to the United States. Most airlines also require these vaccinations.
  • Be sure your pet/s will be secured while traveling. An accident, or even a sudden stop can send your pet flying. They make special harnesses for dogs, similar to seatbelts, and a cat carrier can always be used to transport your cat safely. Of course, make sure the carrier is also secured with a seatbelt. A loose pet in the car can also escape if someone opens the door, so make sure your pet is secured before someone exits the vehicle.
  • Be aware of the dangers of pets left in cars. There have been too many incidents of cats and dogs dying of heatstroke after being left in a hot car (the outside temperature doesn't need to be very hot for this to happen).
