Giving Your Pet Medication

At Heritage Veterinary Clinic, we will always do our best to make sure you are comfortable in administering medicine to your pet at home. Follow these three basic rules when giving your pet any type of medication to ensure the best possible outcome for both you and your pet.

1. Check With Your Vet

The first major rule of giving your pet medication is to never to give your pet medicine that hasn’t been approved or prescribed by your veterinarian. Many medications made for humans are unsafe to give to your pet. If you are concerned about a type of medication or have questions on what to provide your pet, call us to discuss your options.

2. Follow and Read The Instructions

The second rule is to always follow the instructions provided to you by your veterinarian and on the label. Making sure your pet’s medication is given properly will allow your pet to get the maximum benefit from their medication and help reduce any issues.

3. Monitor Your Pet

The final rule is to keep an eye on your pet after you have given them their medication. Even if your pet is on a daily use medication or a flea and tick treatment, you should monitor your pet for changes in their behavior such as their eating and bathroom habits. If you are concerned about something with your pet – call us.

If you are struggling to administer a certain type of medication to your pet, notice a change in behavior, or simply have a question about medications that may or may not be safe for your pet – give us a call at 607-547-8488 .
