DRUGS AND OTHER ITEMS THAT CAN BE GIVEN SAFELY TO DOGS.  If its not on the list DO NOT GIVE IT!
 
Antibiotic ointments- treatment for small wounds, minor infections and bites.  Always clean the area well with soap and water first.
 
Antibacterial Soap - can be used to clean any wound or injury.
BENADRYL - great for allergic reactions, insect stings, severe itching. 
Give twice daily.

Canned Plain Pumpkin - can also be used to combat constipation in dogs - give 1 tablespoon twice a day until the problem is relieved.
 
Digel - Liquid form can be give to help with gas and as an antacid - give up to 4 tablespoons 3 times a day.
 
DRAMAMINE - Used to combat motion sickness.  Note: This will make your dog very drowsy.  Also you can not use this product when shipping a dog via airlines.
Give this product 1/2 hour before travel.

medium             25 milligrams
large                  50 milligrams
 
EPINEPHRINE - This is given to treat severe allergic reactions that cause anaphalaxis.   Use this as a last resort.  Try using the benadryl first.  This must be given very carefully as it elevates heart levels and if given in overdose can be very dangerous.  I would consult a vet when giving Epinephrine - give 1/4 - 1/2 or less cc injected intramuscularly.
 
GAS-X - Give to dogs to help relieve excess gas and flatulence.  Can also be given to help prevent bloat.  Dogs suspected to have bloat should be given 2 doses immediately before transport to emergency clinic.

Hydrocortisone - helps to relieve itchy, raw or irritated skin.  It is given topically to help reduce itiching from hives, hot spots, and insect bites and stings.  Apply a small amout up to two times daily.
 
Hydrogen Peroxide - in dogs this is like Ipecac.  Use it to induce vomiting after accidental injestion -  10 ccs by mouth every 15 minutes until desired effect is produced.
 
 
KAOPECTATE or IMMODIUM - used to stop diarrhea.  This is used instead of Pepto due to it containing aspirn which can cause stomach problems - give 1 teaspoon per 10 lbs of body weight every 4-6 hours for 24 hours until diarrhea stops.  Note: can cause the stools to become dark in color.  This is normal.
 
Mineral Oil- can be used to combat constipation in dogs - give up to 4 tablespoons daily until condition is reversed.
