Motrin and Tylenol are both extremely toxic to dogs and I would not recommend these drugs in veterinary patients under ANY circumstances. The can cause renal failure and significant gastric ulceration. Meloxicam, however is generally very safe and widely used. What dose of the meloxicam do you have available?
