Can I give my dog an Excedrin?


Answer by  Shelby (147)

The main ingredient in the human medicine Excedrin, (acetaminophen), is very deadly to canines and should not be given under any circumstances. If your dog is in pain and you are worried, then you should take him to a vet hospital or clinic.

No. Dogs are allergic to ibuprofen, which is in Excedrin. It can cause serious illness or even death. Consult with your vet for a suitable substitute.

You should not give your dog any human medications including Excedrin unless a veterinarian approves the use in your pet. This can be dangerous!

No no no. I hope you haven't, it will kill your dog. Dogs cannot take tylenol, advil, excedrin, aleve, any of the above. You can give your dog aspirin, but that is the only one. If you have given your dog this, you need to call a vet or emergency vet clinic now.

You should only give a dog baby aspirin, unless otherwise stated by a vet. The dosage depends on the weight of the dog, usually 1 baby aspirin for every 50 lbs.
