Cough Tablets for Dogs and Cats

 

When your dog or cat has a cough, you want to be able to offer relief. Now you can with Cough Tablet for dogs and cats.  Each tablet contains an expectorant, antitussive, and a cough suppressant.

 

  • Provides temporary relief from cough symptoms 
  • For dogs and cats
  • Available in two sizes

 

Each Cough Tablet contains the active ingredients guaifenesin and dextromethorphan hydrobromide, which work together to help relieve your dog or cat’s cough symptoms. Guaifenesin is an expectorant that makes it easier for your pet to cough up mucus and clear its airways. Dextromethorphan hydrobromide is an antitussive or cough suppressant that helps reduce coughing.

  • Q:

    I ordered the cough tablets for my Pom. It says don't skip a dose. During the night do you have to set the alarm and wake up to give the dog her 4 hour dosage. Can you wait until the morning? 
    Asked on 5/29/2015 by joy1 from NEW JERSEY

    1 answer

    • A:

      Your Pom will have better coverage for cough if they don’t skip a dose, but if your pet is sleeping through the night waking them up to take a dose shouldn’t be necessary.

  • Q:

    can cough tabs and chlorpheniramine be taken together for cough in 15yr old Pomeranian, not bale to contact veterinarian until tomorrow?
    Asked on 5/17/2015 by shesha

    1 answer

    • A:

      It is extremely unlikely for there to be an interaction between cough tabs and chlorpheniramine. Using these medications for a short period of time should be safe. Follow up with your veterinarian to verify the appropriateness of these medications for your dog’s condition.

  • Q:

    My 2 year old Pom mix had an antibiotic shot recently and I was givin these tabs to control her cough. She was ok with it yesterday but she is now lethargic and will not go to the bathroom ( although she urinated this morning). Is this normal? 
    Asked on 12/20/2014 by Bethany333 from Ca

    1 answer

    • A:

      Cough Tablets contain dextromethorphan (a cough suppressant) and guaifenesin (expectorant) which helps reduce cough and loosen up congestion to make the cough more productive. The manufacturer of this animal product doesn’t provide information regarding potential adverse effects for cats and dogs. In humans, dextromethorphan is well tolerated with low chance of adverse effects. Potential side effects noted are confusion, irritability, and excitement. The other active ingredient, guaifenesin, side effects are usually not long-lasting and are generally minor. Guaifenesin has been noted to cause sedation in pets though. Due to your pet’s recent infection, if you observe weight change, vomiting or diarrhea contact your veterinarian. We recommend contacting your veterinarian to discuss the change in your pet’s urination frequency.

  • Q:

    dog is a 60 lb border collie, taking 100mg dextrorphan & hydrobromide for occasional bronchitis related cough. name on bottle is cough tabs will this product do the same thing? thanks
    Asked on 10/23/2014 by john06

    1 answer

    • A:

      The Cough Tablets that we offer (Creative Science, LLC) contain two active ingredients, 10mg of dextromethorphan hydrobromide and 100mg of guaifenesin. While the dextromethorphan hydrobromide is included in the product to temporarily reduce cough, the guaifenesin, an expectorant, is included to help clear mucus. It is important to have your pet’s veterinarian verify that this combination of ingredients is safe and effective for your pet. Additionally, bronchitis may need to be treated with prescription medications like antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, or bronchodilators, especially in severe cases. The veterinarian can help you decide if an over-the-counter or prescription medication is best for your pet.

  • Q:

    My 16 yr Maltese has developed a terrible cough for which he was prescribed 10mg of D-M-C. 1/2 tablet every 6 to 8 hours. He has developed a 'drunken walk' and can no longer do steps. Is this sort of thing a side effect or are there other issues?
    Asked on 3/17/2014 by Kakie from Texas, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Kakie,

      If your question is in reference to the Cough Tablets product containing 10mg of dextromethorphan and 100mg of guaifenesin, the answer is that Cough Tablets could possibly be causing the side effects you mentioned. Information on dextromethorphan and guaifenesin for use in dogs is limited, however, and you should follow up with your dog's veterinarian for further guidance relating to this concerning behavior. If the product you are referring to does not contain dextromethorphan and guaifenesin, please post a question with the full product name, so we can provide more detailed information.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    My vet recomended dextromethophan 3mg/ml. She  have collapse trachea,this is for her cough. Do you have 3 mg/ml?
    Asked on 2/16/2014 by asia from oscoda, mi

    1 answer

    • A:

      Asia,

      The only product containing dextromethorphan that we carry are the cough tablets. Each tablet contains 10mg of dextromethorphan hydrobromide. In order to give the dose recommended by your pet's veterinarian, you would need to give 3/10 of a tablet, which is very difficult, or impossible, to split. You would also be giving guaifenesin, which your pet's veterinarian may or may not recommend. You will probably need to look for a liquid form of dextromethorphan, which we do not carry.

      Thank you,

      Cough Tablets are an over-the-counter medication used for temporary relief of cough symptoms in cats and dogs. This question will be best answered by your dog's veterinarian who knows your pet’s complete medical history.

  • Q:

    my dog has been diagnosed with a collapsing trachea. how quickly does guafinesin and dex hydrobromide work?
    Asked on 2/5/2014 by sandradx1 from El Paso, TX, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Sandra,

      Oral guaifenesin is often used in veterinary medicine as an expectorant to help promote the removal of phlegm from the respiratory tract. This is commonly used if your pet has a productive cough. Dextromethorphan is an over-the-counter cough suppressant whose efficacy in dogs is questionable. If no signs of improvement are seen after a couple of doses follow up with your veterinarian for further medical advice.

      Thank you,

      The cough tablets do not require a prescription, however, before starting any over-the-counter medication or supplement, you should consult your pet's veterinarian to ensure it is the best option for your pet.

Cough pills for 15yr old mini Schnauzer

By

Comments about Life Science Products Cough Tablets:

The 'cough pills' are small enough to give in a piece of hotdog. Could have went to the store & bought "over the counter" cough meds, but I didn't want to be sticking a pill down my dogs throat twice a day & forcing her to swallow it. The 'cough pills' are a lot cheaper & smaller than 'over the counter' cough pills & you can order as many as you want.

HUGE SAVINGS!!!!!!

Comments about Life Science Products Cough Tablets:

I was told that my new puppy had a collapsing trachea and will need cough medication for the rest of her life. I was devastated and doubly devastated when I found out how much they cost at my vet. I paid over $1.00/tablet. She was prescribed 1/4 tablet twice daily. The bigger she gets the more she will need of course. This puppy was a Christmas gift for my 7 year old and she LOVES her new baby but being a single mom I did my research and thought I found a healthy puppy. Surgery could also be a possibility one day ($6000). I thought we would probably have to find a new home that could better take care of my sick puppy until I found the medication (which seems to be working great by the way with no surgery in sight yet) on VetRX Direct website. It has been a lifesaver! My vet charges 10 times the amount that VetRx does for the exact same pills! THANK YOU VetRX Direct for making this situation a little easier and possibly making it possible to keep our new baby. You have been a blessing! I will always check prices on here before I ever buy from anywhere else again!

Comments about Life Science Products Cough Tablets:

I have been using these tablets to help manage my Jack Russell's bronchitis and allergy symptoms. They don't cure the underlying condition, but make the symptoms much less severe and manageable. The price is well below that charged by most vets.

Comments about Life Science Products Cough Tablets:

I bought these for my cat, who has a chronic cough and sneezing. He couldn't tolerate the liquid prescription from the vet.
Unfortunately, he wouldn't take the crushed tablets either, no matter how I disguised them - in baby food, raw beef, canned mackerel, and more.
However, I have three other animals, and I will keep these, just in case
