Q. Can you give a dog a Tylenol 3?

A. Do not give your dog any pain medications such as Tylenol or Advil unless specifically instructed by your vet. These medications can be very harmful to dogs and can cause ulceration of the stomach as well as organ failure if given too often or in the wrong dosage. If your dog is experiencing pain, your vet can recommend a safer dog-friendly medication to help ease pain. If you are in an emergency situation where your dog needs pain relief fast, it is best to contact your vet or an emergency clinic in your area for further help.
