Top 5 Kind Of Medications For Your Dog’S Good Health
As hard to believe as it may be, there used to be a time when all you could do for your dog’s good health is pray! That’s right. If your dog got sick, they would either get better or they wouldn’t. But with the advancements in medical science, that’s thankfully not the case anymore. There are countless ways to treat our dogs if they fall ill or meet with unforeseen mishaps.
While it is recommended to always take your dog to an expert vet if you’re not sure about what the issue might be, here are some common medicines that could help alleviate the problem–
Antibiotics are frequently prescribed to dogs fighting a bacterial infection or yeast. They don’t kill viruses, but are prescribed to treat secondary bacterial infections that can occur when an animal is ill from a viral infection. Some of the most common ones can include penicillin, trimethoprim-sulfa, and enrofloxacin.
This kind of medicine is usually intended to prevent, repel or kill parasites – whether internal or external – such as intestinal worms, intestinal protozoans, fleas and ticks. Vermectin is one of the several common antiparasitics prescribed by vets to treat roundworms, threadworms, and other parasites in dogs.
These medicines are commonly used to reduce any swelling, inflammation, pain that your dogs might be having. Some of the most common medicines include carprofen, deracoxib, firocoxib, and meloxicam.
They do just what they say – relieve pain. They are usually derived from morphine, a potent painkiller, and hence very effective for dogs. For instance, Tramadol can alleviate chronic pain associated with arthritis in dogs, or even for post-operative pain. Other common pain relivers include carprofen and deracoxib.
Steroids can have different uses, but are most commonly used to reduce allergic and anaphylactic reactions. They are also used at high doses to suppress a dog’s immune system. Some of the better drugs include prednisone and dexamethasone.
