Q. My 90# American Bulldog has a sore that is red and swollen. Can I give her Tylenol or Advil for the pain and redness tonight? How much?

A. Tylenol and Advil are actually toxic to dogs and cats and should never be given. If your dog is experiencing pain, I would recommend that you call your vet's office and they can suggest some pet friendly pain medication.
