NO!!! It is toxic for dogs. Never give any human medication to your dog unless you have been advised by your vet. Their systems metabolize things quite differently than humans.

Wiley is so right. NEVER, EVER give a dog medication meant for humans without checking with your vet first. Some human drugs work on dogs, some are ineffective, and some are dangerous- Tylenol is in the last category. It can cause fatal liver damage in dogs, even with small amounts.

If your dog consumes ANY amount of Tylenol (or another brand of pain medicine containing acetaminophen) get them to the vet right away.
