Q. Can I give Tylenol to my dog? She was spayed Friday and is in pain and the vet is closed.
A. Unfortunately, Tylenol is not safe for dogs. Medications like Tylenol and Advil are not formulated for our pets and can actually harm them if given to them. I would recommend waiting until your vet is open and speaking to them about a dog specific pain medication. If you are concerned that your dog cannot wait, I would see if there is an emergency animal clinic in your area and see if they can see your dog and recommend a medication. Fortunately most dogs do well after a spay with lots of rest and relaxation. I hope your dog feels better soon!
