Prescription Respiratory & Asthma Treatment Dogs

Help your dog breathe a little easier with respiratory & asthma medicine. Chewy carries many asthma and upper respiratory infection medications for those troubling ailments. You should have no trouble finding exactly what you need.

You will need to see your vet to get a proper diagnosis and prescription for dog asthma medication. A veterinarian can perform the necessary tests to see if your dog has asthma or another respiratory issue and decide which prescription asthma medicine will work best for your pup. Younger dogs with asthma may need a special prescription asthma medicine for puppies or possibly an adjusted dose of adult asthma medicine.

Canines suffering from respiratory infections are usually prescribed antibiotics for a few weeks. It is important to give the medication exactly as directed and to finish your dog’s prescription even if he seems to be cured. A failure to do so may result in recurring or even antibiotic-resistant infections. Most dogs recover fully from upper respiratory infections unless they have an underlying disease or issue.

You can order many types of prescription dog medicine from the Chewy pet pharmacy. We also carry respiratory & asthma medicine for cats with breathing issues and other prescription cat medicines, too. Visit our site for your respiratory & asthma medicine and find everything else you need to keep your pets healthy and well!
