Q. My dog is breathing abnormally. No vomiting, no nasal discharge, no fever. Gave him benadryl and ibuprofen, helped cough. Breathing is still heavy.
A. Advil or Ibuprofen is highly toxic to dogs and cats and should never be given. Tylenol is another medication that is toxic. Human medications should never be a first resort. If your dog is experiencing pain, I would recommend that you call your vet's office and they can suggest some pet friendly pain medication. I would recommend calling your vet immediately due to the breathing issues and due to the fact that he was given ibuprofen. He could have blood thinning issues, liver issues and trouble breathing needs immediate veterinary assistance.
