Can you give your dog a decongestant?

My dog is congested, will it be safe for me to give him a decongestant?

Not without a recommendation from your vet. Dogs and cats can take SOME "people medicines", but you have to be very careful about which medicines and dosage.

Do not, under any circumstances, give a dog any medication that was intended for human use. This may result is serious damage to the dog or even its death. As canines weigh less than humans they need to be prescribed medication by a vet who is familiar with the correct dose needed for animals of varying sizes.
