NO! Tylenol may be safer for us, but not dogs.

You could try some aspirin, buffered is best. You can give 5 mg per pound of body weight every 12 hours. A regular 325 mg tablet is right for a 65 pound dog. For smaller dogs, you may need to start with a baby aspirin.

I seldom give my dogs anything the vet doesn't direct, or suggest anybody else does. If giving your dog the aspirin seems to help, it is in pain. You really need to work with the vet, or perhaps a second one. The aspirin isn't a long term fix.

No Tylenol. The safe amount of aspirin to give depends on your dog's weight. It is always wise to check with your vet before administering aspirin or any other medication. Giving too large of a dose of aspirin may be toxic to your dog.
