No! Nyquil has acetaminophen (the same stuff that is in Tylenol) and it is toxic to dogs or cats. If you think your dog needs NyQuil it's best to take them to a vet. If it's a runny nose and sneezing it's more than likely an upper respiratory infection and needs antibiotics. If it's coughing theres a hundred different things it could be. Robitussin in small amounts has been used and some people think it's ok but others don't. So I would be very careful with anything that is intended for people. I know vets are expensive but it really is the best thing to do for your pet!
