The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) is asking for veterinarians to make their own decisions on which medications to prescribe for their pets.
The association’s new list of best veterinary drugs, based on the research done by a pet-friendly research group, will help veterinarians and pet owners decide which drugs work best for their dogs.
Pet owners can also get advice on which pet drugs are safe for their furry friends, and how to safely feed them when they’re sick.
The association has put out a new website called pet-doctor.com for pet owners, to help vet practitioners determine which drugs are best for each pet.
“Our goal is to empower pet owners to make the best choices they can on their pets,” said Dr. David M. Stuckey, president and chief executive of the AVMA.
According to the AVM, pet owners are more likely to use more expensive veterinary drugs for pets if they don’t trust their own health, since the FDA has deemed most drugs to be safe for dogs.
For example, in 2012, the FDA determined that most pet-based vaccines are safe.
Pet owners are also more likely if they are on prescription medications, which can have side effects.
The AVMA said prescription medication is the third most popular veterinary drug among pet owners.
But it said there are some drugs that can be used safely and effectively for pets that are only used in specific cases.
For example, it said pet owners can use the following drugs safely for dogs with chronic cough:CorticosteroidsCortisone, the main form of corticosteroid, which helps relieve the symptoms of asthma and other allergies.
MethylprednisolonePrednisololone is a common type of prednisone used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which is the main cause of asthma.
It’s also used to help manage chronic cough.
The AVMA also said it recommends that pet owners take their pets to the vet for a blood test, urine test, and an EKG, or electromyogram, to assess the pet’s health.
A few common pet-related side effects can include:Weakness in the chest, legs, and backThe ability to cough and sneeze easily, as well as an inability to breathe normallyThe ability of the pet to urinate easily, but with difficulty or not at allThe ability for the pet not to get enough air, or the pet breathing too quickly or shallowlyThe inability to urination after meals or water bowls, and the pet getting a lumpy or stinky odorThe inability of the animal to urinating and breathing normallyThe inability for the animal not to eat or drink after eating or drinkingFor a complete list of medications, go to the pet-disease.org website.
