Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee ones today.

Yes, you can but only Robitussin DM not any of their other cough syrups.

If you use this, they can have a dose of 1 milligram per pound of body weight (28mg for a 28lb dog) every 8 hours. Of course, do make sure to only use this one and avoid any with pet toxic cold medications like acetaminophen, paracetamol, ibuprofen caffeine, alcohol, or pseudoephedrine. And just to note, in case you are struggling to obtain this one in particular, you can use non-medicated honey/glycerine could syrup or even given plain honey as needed to soothe their throats.

All the best,

Dr. B.
