Answered By

A. Absolutely DO NOT give your dog Tylenol, or any other human analgesic or NSAID. At best, they cause gastric bleeding, at worst they are toxic to liver and kidneys. Consult your veterinarian before giving your dog medications of any kind. Aspirin especially thins the blood and can lead to excessive bleeding. If he is in distress, he should be seen by a vet as soon as possible, at the emergency clinic if necessary.
