8 tips to keep your cool dog cool:
Does anyone fancy an ice cream?
Spoiling your dog is sometimes fine!
Who doesn't like ice cream? While there are special ice creams for pups at the grocery store, plain old vanilla works just fine. Starbucks "Pupachinos" are also popular. Just remember, too much of a good thing is bad for the waistline.
Medications, even those deemed safe enough to be dispensed over the counter can cause problems. Medicate only on advice from a veterinarian. Do not give more than is recommended.
If this is a new illness for the dog, please speak with your veterinarian BEFORE giving any OTC medications. If this is a recurring problem for your dog and you've given this medication in the past, please see your vet if symptoms persist more than a couple of days, or if the symptoms worsen, or you see no improvement.
Here you can find an approximative dog-friendly counter medication, but always ask a veterinarian before giving any medication to your dog.
