I'm sorry to hear of this with your dog. As for over the counter analgesia, caretakers are constrained to aspirin dosed at 10 mg per pound of body weight with food at 12 hour intervals or acetaminophen which can be dosed at 7 mg per pound of body weight thrice daily but isn’t antiinflammatory as is aspirin. You can give aspirin and acetaminophen concurrently which should provide better analgesia than either drug alone. When giving acetaminophen for longer than 5 consecutive days it's best to reduce the dose to 5 mg per pound of body weight twice daily. You must avoid the toxic ibuprofen and naproxen in dogs. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

I don't know what any of those pills are except the aspirin but I'm going to write them down and show them to Wal-Mart and hope someone can help me. Thank You for your help.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 5 months ago

Tylenol is a common brand name for acetaminophen but there are many generics. Yes, the pharmacist at Wal-Mart can help you get the correct analgesic for your dog. Fee free to share our conversation with the pharmacist. I can't set a follow-up in this venue so please return to our conversation - even after rating - with an update at your convenience. You can bookmark this page for ease of return.
