Hello,

You cannot give any Tylenol, Advil, Motrin, Aleve or any other over the counter nasiad be cause they are toxic to dogs and cats. You can however give your dog 5 mgs of Plain Aspirin for pain every 12 hours for a total of two days. This will aid with pain and will help until you can get your dog to the Vet. for further care.
