I decided to add the page Over The Counter Meds to the Tian Mi site to help you know which medications are safe for dogs and which ones are not. If a simple problem can be treated at home without the costly trip to the vet then I am all for it.
Keep in mind that thein formation on this page is not a substitute for the care of a vet. If your dog has serious symptoms, dont try treating them at home. If you are ever unsure, take the animal to the vet.
