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.
