Rated 1 out of 5 by from Made him cry My pug was given this for brachycephalic syndrome. We were supposed to give it to him twice a day. When we gave him his morning dose, he would cry for five hours. This went on for three days, finally the vet said to stop giving it to him and he hasn't cried anymore.
