Hello. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed veterinarian.

No, you cannot give Tylenol to your dog. It is very toxic to dogs. What is her temperature now?

I don't have anothet question.

Okay, that is fine. If she has a fever then she needs to be put on antibiotics for her wound. The normal rectal temperature for a dog is 100 to 102.5 degrees F.

Please let me know if I can help answer any additional questions for you. Thank you.
