  • Gabapentin may be useful in the treatment of chronic or cancer pain in cats and dogs. It may also be used as adjunctive therapy for seizures.

  • Gentamicin is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections. This preparation has been prescribed to treat a bacterial infection of the eye. Common infections treated with this medication are conjunctival infections and infections on the cornea (clear part of eye).

  • Certain medical conditions can be controlled by the use of drugs that are only available in an injectable formulation. Two of these conditions are diabetes mellitus, which requires daily insulin injections, and certain allergies, which are controlled by regular injections of allergenic extracts. In many cases, dog owners are willing and able to administer these medications at home.

  • The easiest way to give your dog a liquid medication is to use a treat specially designed for this purpose or mix it with some canned food. To ensure your dog swallows the medication, it is best to hand feed the medicated food or treat, rather than mixing it into a large portion that the dog may not completely consume.

  • The easiest way to give your dog a pill is to hide the pill in food. This usually works best if you hide it in a special treat such as a small amount of canned dog food, peanut butter or cottage cheese. To ensure that your dog swallows the pill, you should hand feed the medicated piece of food or treat rather than offering it in a large portion that the dog may not completely consume.

  • Glipizide is a sulfonylurea anti-diabetic agent used to treat non-insulin dependent diabetes. Glipizide works by causing the pancreas to release more insulin into the bloodstream.

  • Griseofulvin is an antifungal medication. It is usually used to treat ringworm. It also may be used to treat fungal infections of the skin, hair and nails.

  • Hydralazine is used to treat high blood pressure by decreasing the workload of the heart and arteries. It is also used as an added treatment in congestive heart failure.

  • Hydrocodone is used to suppress a cough. It may be used when your pet has kennel cough, collapsing trachea or a viral lung infection. Generally, this medicine is used for a cough that is harsh, dry and non-productive.

  • Hydroxyzine is an antihistamine. Antihistamines are used to relieve or prevent the symptoms of allergy. Your veterinarian may prescribe this medication to prevent itching in your dog or cat. This medication has sedative properties.
