How long does it take for Robitussin to work in dogs?
It may be given with or without food; however, if your pet vomits when given this medication on an empty stomach, give future doses with food or a treat. Measure liquid forms of this medication carefully. This medication will take effect quickly, in about 1 to 2 hours, and improvement in clinical signs should follow.
Will Robitussin hurt a dog?
Robitussin is useful for a mild cough. Often times it will help a dog to stop coughing and also sleep better at night. I occasionally prescribe it for those intended purposes.
