Can you give Aleve to a dog?


Answer by  traumatised (3285)

No, you should not give your dog ANY pain medication unless it is recommended by a vet. Some medications are extremely toxic and dangerous to dogs. Even safe medications can be harmful in the wrong doses. It is difficult to gauge how much pain your pet is feeling, even if you know them well. Please go to a vet ASAP.

Most over the counter pain killers are not recommended for pets. You should never, for any reason, give Aleve(Naproxen Sodium)to your dog. It can cause him serious side effects or could even kill him. Talk to your veterinarian and ask them to prescribe the best treatment for your pet.

Do not give Aleve to a dog! In dogs, even low doses can cause gastrointestinal ulceration with possible perforation and death. Aleve can also cause kidney failure with possible death. Please contact your veterinarian to find out what drug and dose would be appropriate for the dog's specific situation.

Some medicines for human can be given to dogs, but I strongly suggest asking your veternarian BEFORE administering the drugs. For example Cherry Children's Bendryl can be given to a dog for congestion when reccomended by your dogs vet. You should always ask he/she first because they will tell you if it's okay and the proper dosage.

Do not give Aleve to dogs ever. It is highly toxic to them and can cause serious kidney and liver damage and even death. They may only have aspirin and administer that to them by your vet's recommendation and what is appropriate for them per their size and weight.
