Pet Drugs: Helping Your Pet Stay Healthy
Common Types of Pet Drugs
Today’s pet parents have a wide variety of pet drugs available to help their dog or cat live a healthier, happier life. For example, there are now many types of topical and oral pet drugs which safely and effectively kill fleas and ticks on your pets with a single monthly dose. Many of the drugs used to kill fleas and ticks on your pets are available without a prescription.
Another common type of pet drug is used to prevent heartworm disease in dogs and cats. These pet drugs are also available in topical or oral forms and, when used monthly, prevent heartworm disease in your dog or cat. This category of medication does require a prescription from your veterinarian.
Pet Drugs Can Relieve Your Pet’s Pain
There are also many different types of pet drugs which can help relieve your pet’s pain caused by diseases such as arthritis, cancer or after surgery. This category of drugs for your pet is referred to as analgesics. Examples of pet drugs which can help relieve your pet’s pain include Rimadyl, Metacam and Tramadol.
Pet Drugs to Treat Illness
Many pet drugs are available which treat conditions such as diabetes, thyroid conditions, incontinence, heart disease and many others. If your dog or cat is diagnosed with a medical condition, your vet will recommend the appropriate pet drug to best treat the illness. For example, if your dog requires a drug to treat an infection, your veterinarian will advise you on the antibiotic best suited to combat the bacteria causing the infection.
Pet Drugs Can Prevent Illness
One of the best ways to prevent illness in your dog or cat is by using a pet drug which strengthens the immune system, such as Vetri-DMG. There are also pet drugs such as glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM which help dogs and cats maintain healthy joints, and vitamin and mineral supplements which help support your pet’s overall nutritional status.
Working closely with your veterinarian, you can find the best pet drugs to keep your dog or cat as healthy as possible for as long as possible.
