Can a dog get addcted to Hydrocdone? My Vet gave me cough syrup for my dog and t says he can take it every 12 hours. The cough has hi having couh attacks twice to 3 times a day. He has had this syrup every day for a couple of weeks. How can I tell if he gets addicted?
if you stop giving it to him when its done i dobt he will become addicted
Humans can get horribly addicted as you know. I read 1 week but it all depends on dose too. Even a low dose for a longer period of time will cause problems. It is a horrible withdrawl. The dog probably wont eat sleep be agitated, etc. etc. like humans withdrawl. I feel sorry for the animals they do that type experiment on. I am doing the same research because my mothers dog was given a script of the stuff. Personally I would not give my dog a narcotic more then 3 days consecutive, but thats me. I do NOT want anyone turning my Opinion into advice, do your research, get other opinions. Mine is only an opinion and not advice. Thanks much and best of luck.
