NUNCA le des a tu perro medicinas sin antes checar con tu veterinario. No es raro que un dueño bien intencionado accidentalmente envenene a su perro con medicinas que son peligrosas.
Asi que... que medicinas no debes darle nunca a tu perro?

*Aspirina
La toxicidad por aspirina (toxicidad salicilico) es el envenenamiento que ocurre despues de ingerir aspirina o productos que contengan aspirina.
La Aspirina puede ser especialmente peligrosa cuando se mezcla con otras drogas como esteroides o drogas anti-inflamatorios sin esteroides. Hay muchos mas riesgo de toxicidad.
La Aspirina interfiere con las plaquetas, que son responsables de ayudar a la sangre a coagular. La interrupcion de la funcion de las plaquetas aumenta la cantidad de tiempo que le toma a la sangre coagular en casos de heridas o laceraciones.
Tambien puede ocurrir sangrado espontaneo causando moretones en la piel y en las encias. La aspirina puede causar problemas gastrointestinales, dificultades respiratorias e insuficiencia renal. Los problemas gastrointestinales son comunes en perros.

*Ibuprofeno
Es un medicamento popular y efectivo para tratar el dolor y la inflamacion en las personas.
Para perros, el ibuprofeno facilmente puede superar los niveles toxicos.
La causa mas comun de la toxicidad de ibuprofeno es cuando un dueño bien intencionado intenta aliviar el dolor en su perro administrandole una dosis que el piensa es adecuado, sin conocer la dosis toxica.
El primer efecto toxico son ulceras estomacales. Ademas de las ulceras, el aumento de dosis de ibuprofeno conduce a la insuficiencia renal y, si se deja sin tratamiento, puede ser fatal.
Los sintomas incluyen falta de apetito, vomitos, heces negras, vomitar sangre, dolor abdominal, debilidad y letargo.

*Acetaminofeno
Las marcas comunes que lo contienen son Tylenol ®, Percoset ®, Excedrin ® sin aspirina y varios medicamentos para sinusitis, gripe o influenza.
Los perros comunmente reciven cantidades toxicas de acetaminofeno porque los propietarios los medican sin consultar a un veterinario.
Tambien consumen tabletas que se caen al piso o se dejan a su alcance. Los perros son menos sensibles al acetaminofeno que los gatos.
Por ejemplos, un perro de 50 libras necesitaria ingerir mas de 7 tabletas de 500 mg para sufrir efectos toxicos.
En el gato, una tableta de 250 mg de acetaminofeno puede ser fatal. Si sospechas que tu perro ha ingerido una cantidad toxica de acetaminofeno (una pastilla o mas) contacta a algun veterinario de emergencia inmediatamente.

NEVER give your dog medication without first checking with your veterinarian. It is not uncommon for a well-intentioned owner to accidentally poison their dog with medications that are dangerous.
So... what medications should you never give your dog?

*Aspirin
Aspirin toxicity (salicylate toxicity) is poisoning that occurs following the ingestion of aspirin or asrpirin-containing roducts.
Aspiring can be specially dangerous when mixed with other drugs such as steroids or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. There is a much higher risk of toxicity.
Aspirin interferes with platelets, which are responsible for helping the blood to clot. Distruption of platelet function increases the amount of time it takes the blood to clot in cases of wounds or lacerations.
Spontanoues bleeding may also occur causing bruises to appear in the skin and on the gums.
Aspirin toxicity may cause gastrointestinal problems, bleeding disorders and kidney failure.
Gastrointestinal problems are common in dogs.

*Ibuprofen
It is a popular and effective over-the-counter medication available to treat pain and inflammation in people.
For dogs, ibuprofen can easily exceed toxic levels. The most common cause of ibuprofen toxicity is a well-meaning owner who tries to alleviate pain in his dog by administering a dose he thinks is adequate without knowing the toxic dose.
The initial toxic effect is bleeding stomach ulcers. In addition to ulcers, increasing doses of ibuprofen eventually lead to kidney failure and, if left untreated, can be fatal. Symptoms include poor appetite, vomiting, black tarry stools, vomiting blood, abdominal pain, weakness and lethargy.

*Acetaminophen
Common brands include Tylenol®, Percoset®, aspirin free Excedrin® and various sinus, cold and flu medications.
Dogs most commonly receive toxic amounts of acetaminophen because owners medicate them without consulting a veterinarian.
They also consume tablets that are dropped on the floor or left around. Dogs are less sensitive to acetaminophen than cats.
For example, a 50-pound dog would need to ingest over seven 500 mg tablets in order to suffer toxic effects.
In the cat, one 250 mg acetaminophen tablet could be fatal. If you suspect that your dog has ingested a toxic amount of acetaminophen, (one pill or more), contact your family veterinarian or local veterinary emergency facility immediately.
