Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Actually, it can be used for bronchitis in dogs (and people too). One of the lesser known effects of Buscopan (Hyoscine) is that it can reduce secretions in the lungs to reduce congestion within them. So, while it is often used with other medications (ie bronchodilators, anti-inflammatories, antibiotics if we have secondary infection); it is a reasonable drug choice in trying to reduce the effects of bronchitis for Bruno.

I hope this information is helpful.

If you need any additional information, do not hesitate to ask!

All the best,

Dr. B.
