What does crossover medication or human equivalent medication mean for pets?
Just like their owners, pets may experience anxiety, allergies, diabetes and other illnesses and will be prescribed medications directed by your veterinarian.
Can pets take the same medications or pet equivalent medications as their owner?
Yes. Pets can be prescribed the same prescription as humans are, for example tramadol or Prozac. The quantity and dosage for pets will be different than a human prescription which is why the medication must be prescribed by a veterinarian.
