Hazards Lurking in Your Dog’s Medicine Cabinet

One of the most common emergencies that we see as veterinarians is a dog that has gotten into medications. While many human drugs can be safely administered to dogs, overdoses can be dangerous or deadly.

So which drugs are the common ones that dogs get into?

Here are our top five dangerous medications to dogs:


Ibuprofen (or many similar drugs such as Aleve)


Tylenol and/or Tylenol-containing drugs

Another pet’s medication

If your dog does eat a pill that he or she is not the intended recipient of, call your veterinarian or local veterinary emergency clinic immediately.
