A. Do NOT give your dog any over the counter medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen or other NSAIDs. These medications can cause internal bleeding, ulceration and toxicity when given to dogs. If your dog has sustained an injury, contacting your vet is best. They can provide you with dosing information on a dog-safe medication, or provide your Lab with a pain medication specially formulated for dogs.
