Do Tell: Have You Ever Used Human Meds on a Pet?

Even though many human medications are a hazard to pets' health there are some animal experts that will recommend certain doses for furry friends.

For example, Renees3's pooch B-Bop was attacked by fire ants twice now — eeks! The first time they went to the vet, where the pooch received steroids and Benadryl. However, his trainer said she could give him 1mg for every pound so, when they were unable to get to the doc the second time, she cut the 25mg pink pills in half for the tiny pooch. While I'd never recommend medicating a pet without an expert opinion, have you ever been told to do so in the past?
