Cholesterol lowering agents / Statins
Medications like Crestor and Lipitor are used to lower cholesterol in humans. Luckily for dogs and cats, they tend not to have problems with cholesterol, and don't need medications like these! If your pet were to accidentally get into your cholesterol medications, however, it's possible you'll see some upset stomach symptoms, but generally, the symptoms are mild and short-lived. If your pet gets into an excessive amount, has a medical condition, is small in size, or is very young or very old, the risks could be higher, and you should seek advice from one of our pet experts on how to proceed!
