Tylenol is perfectly safe in dogs at the appropriate dose and is beneficial in situations like this because it can be given with metacam. At the wrong dose though it can be toxic like any medication. It is actually preferred by some specialist over aspirin because it can be used with NSAIDS and causes less stomach issues.
