Some over the counter meds that dogs can take:
Benedryl for itching or allergies.
Chewable Pepto for vomiting or diarrhea.
Baby asprin is a great wormer and also for pain. (must be asprin, not tylenol or advil)
Plain yogurt is good for vomiting and diarrhea as it turns the 'bad' bacteria to 'good'

My 4 week old kitten had diarrhea for day. Even the Vet didn't help. She said oh its because I changed the diet from milk to wet food, that's the reason why she has it. Anyways, frustrated I tried the yogurt remedy. I didn't give her any food for about 16 hours and then gave her a tablespoon of yogurt. It worked like a charm.

Asprin will not kill worms but it can be VERY harmful, even in low doses, to dogs and ESPECIALLY cats.

I was looking for information on how to deworm my cat because he wouldnt go near the meds I got over the counter. I was going to try the baby aspirin, but after reading that it is very harmful to animals I refuse to use it. Dont try it, hurting your pet is definately not worth it!!!

DO NOT GIVE CATS ASPRIN!(OF ANY KIND!)CAN BE DEADLY!
GIVE ONLY LOW DOSE ASPRIN TO DOGS, ON VETS APPROVAL!

My vet said that I could use baby Benedryl for my dog's itching, and scrathing caused by mange. However I CAN'T! The dog vomits immediately.

Baby chewable pepto works for diarrhea. I gave my dog 1/4 of a tablet and it worked instantly.

We give our dog Benadryl for itching caused by mange and a secondary yeast infection. We give him 1 bendadryl (store brand) a day. We usually give it with a small cracker and peanut butter or a piece of bread and peanut butter. This was all on recommendation of our vet. It really provides him much needed relief.

Yogurt does not 'Turn bad bacteria into good bacteria'. It will not affect 'bad bacteria' at all.

It does contain 'good bacteria', which will only help if the animal's natural intestinal culture has been killed by something like a strong antibiotic.

~Baby Asprin~
My vet told me I could give my 4 year old kitty a baby asprin to relieve his pain from when his growth popped 1 baby asprin per 12lbs. As soon as it kicked in he was all lovey dovey and was back to his normal self! Don't give to kittens. Don't give too much you will kill your pet if you do.

~Children's Benedryl~
My other kitty Dolly got stung by a yellow jacket on her lip. She wanted to eat it. I called the vet and they told me give her 1 teaspoon of childrens benedryl to relieve the pain and reduce the swelling. She didn't like the taste so she druled a bit but she was fine and the swelling went down.
