Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stops the coughing! My cat has asthma and this drug has been instrumental in reducing her coughing to about once a week. I give her half a pill and she immediately stops. In the beginning she coughed all of the time, but this has certainly done the trick.

Can I give my dog pain medicine with dexamethasone?

My dog is in the last days of his life. He has osteosarcoma and has lived longer than all predictions. He is in his last days now and is quite uncomfortable. I'm giving him an injection of dexamethasone daily (1/2 ml). He weighs 64 pounds. Can I give him some pain medication too, just to get him through the weekend? I have tramadol, piroxicam and cerenia on hand.
Asked by: Cathy
tramadol would probably be the best choice......BUT PLEASE consult your vet in regard to dosing

Can dogs use the same prescription as humans

Dexamethasone
Asked by: Eleln
Eleln, Thank-you for your question! There are many prescriptions that both dogs and humans use. Some examples are medications used to treat infections, anxiety, diabetes, high blood pressure, motion sickness, seizures and urinary tract infections. Dexamethasone is a commonly prescribed anti-inflammatory for dogs. The dosing is smaller when compared to human dosing. Dogs get prescribed this medication for a multitude of diseases such as asthma, hives and itching, skin & eye problems etc. It is completely safe to use in dogs as long as the medication is given properly.
