Can dogs take ibuprofen?

Dogs can take ibuprofen. Like any other medication, ibuprofen has potential side effects. Your veterinarian will have more information about how much, if any, you need to give your dog. A safe amount may be different for your dog than for other animals.

What can you do if your dog gets an overdose?

If you think your dog has overdosed on ibuprofen, call your veterinarian right away. If you notice no effect or you see problems like drooling, vomiting, or diarrhea, call immediately.

This medication is toxic and potentially deadly to animals. If you suspect an overdose of any medicine, call your veterinarian immediately and have the product removed from the premises and disposed of. (Always follow the label’s instructions, including any cautions, warnings, and safety statements.)

Can other types of medication be used in place of ibuprofen?

Some medications may be used in place of ibuprofen. See your veterinarian for advice about the appropriate substitution. It is important that the medication you use be tested on animals to make sure it is safe for your animal. Ask your veterinarian if a drug has been tested on dogs before using it on your animal.

Can I give my dog an antibiotic to reduce pn?

While there is little evidence that antibiotics are effective at reducing pn, they may cause harmful side effects. In the short-term, they can kill some bacteria and prevent infections that might otherwise occur. But long-term use can disrupt normal gut flora and possibly change a pet's normal intestinal microflora.

Ask your veterinarian if this is something you can do for your dog and if there are any side effects that are likely to occur.

Some natural products have been shown to be effective in helping pets cope with pn. See your veterinarian for advice about these products.

It is important to keep your dog safe when you give your dog any medication. First, make sure the dosage is correct, taking into account your dog’s size. Consult the instructions that come with the medication and if needed, speak to your veterinarian.
