Q. Bruised ribs needs pain meds
Is Tylenol ok
A. Tylenol (acetaminophen - the active ingredient in the United States) has been shown to be TOXIC when given to dogs and cats and should never be used as a pain reliever for your pets. Please do not give this medication to your dog. If your dog is in pain please seek the advice of your veterinarian and ask for pet friendly pain medication.
A. Tylenol is not the best pain killer. It must not be used in cats, in dogs the dose is 10-20mg/kg but you can get much safer and more effective pain relief from your local vets.
