'The Long and Short of it All' is Brought to You by:

Parke, Davis & Company:  Makers of medicine since 1866:  One of the responsibilities parents feel most keenly is that of giving medicine to a child.  To be sure, there are times when circumstances would seem to justify trying a course of treatment that worked well during a previous illness...and which seems safe enough to repeat without consulting the doctor.
At such times, parents should recognize that they probably cannot answer these fundamental questions:

Is the child's illness the same?
Should the dosage be the same as it was?
Has the medicine lost its potency?

Many illnesses have symptoms in common.  What may seem like a familiar and none-too-serious symptom to you, could be something else requiring an entirely different form of treatment.
Medicine given under a physician's supervision is a known remedy prescribed for a known condition.  That's why getting prompt and proper medical care may well turn out to be one of the biggest bargains of your life.

Put the dachshund in bed with the child! We called that "getting the black aspirin" when I was growing up! Always seem to do the trick!
