My dog has canine cough and I can't get to the store today to get some Robitussin. I do have some Promethazine with Codeine that I got last year for a cough of my own. Can I give him some of that to make him more comfortable?

My 13lb chihuahua mix has a bumpy rash on his inner thigh

My 13lb chihuahua mix has a bumpy rash on his inner thigh and along the side of his neck. This started last night. The thigh bumps were small and pinkish. I couldn't see any color on the neck bumps. He was licking his inner thigh so frequently and that's how I noticed the rash. I put some 1% OTC hydrocortisone cream on the inner thigh to help him out until the vet visit. Now it looks more diffuse, flatter and like they are blending together. What is this rash? No changes in diet.

Kara. My 65-pound 13 1/2 year-old male Terrier mix, Kurt,

Hi Dr. Kara. My 65-pound 13 1/2 year-old male Terrier mix, Kurt, was prescribed meloxicam for his joint and muscle stiffness, which we haven't started him on yet. It cost $100 for 100 ml. We were wondering if we could give it to him every other day or even less frequently. Since the dosing is done according to weight, not a unit of measure, I am not able to calculate how many doses 100 ml will be/how long it will last.Thank you.
