guidelines important to always have in mind at the time of having
a dog. As a matter of fact, the first thing to have in mind regarding
a dog's health is to always consult a veterinarian when the dog seems
sick or when there's any doubt regarding his health at all, and never
medicate him without the consent of a professional.

the fact that human medications could not produce the same effect
on a dog, and could actually harm him rather than help them healing.

him a human medication and you should try to avoid any medicine which
was not recommended by a veterinarian.
