Hello,
I’m glad that you are at a vet now to see if any reaction is happening. Robitussin can be used by dogs (it’s not cleared by FDA for use in dogs, but many vets to use it to treat)…

I’ve never heard of any reactions with it, but I’m sure there are some dogs that do.

Would be interested to hear back from you after the vet does the exam.

I’m wondering if that is a possible allergic reaction to Dextromethorphan? What did the vet say?
