== == as most medical treatments are tested on animals, we give our husky paracetamol every now and then and she seems fine i breed dogs and have owned many animals over the years. the vets use medication that is often generic human medication - read the boxes, the often give human doseage too. i recommend doing a bit of research into NSAIDS, (never ibuprofen). my VET told me to buy OTC medication codine based pain relief tablets.

How much paracetamol will kill a dog?

This depends upon the size of the dog, the dog's overall health status, the absorption rate of the paracetamol and the dog's genetics. In some cases, a single human dose pill or tablet is sufficient; in other cases, it takes half a bottle. However, I will caution that paracetamol is not a quick or certain death; it should not be used for euthanasia purposes.

Can dogs have paracetamol?

Paracetamol is not a drug recommended for dogs and hence dogs should not have Paracetamol. Paracetomol generally has its toxic effect on the liver, causing irreversible damage. In fact dogs can rarely survive an overdose of Paracetomol. One should consult a vet if the dog had Paracetamol, the severity of consequences will depend on dog's age and breed too.

Can you give your 12 year old female dog a little paracetamol she had op this morning but seems in some discomfort was thinking I could give her an eight of a tablet till morning?

No. Paracetamol can cause serious liver damage and problems with heamoglobin in the blood (what carries oxygen around the body.) Because your dog is fairly elderly the risk of serious side effects is even higher. It may not cause problems, and you aren't giving her that much, but just to be on the safe side, you should speak with your vet and tell him/her your dog is in discomfort and they can prescribe the right medication.

This can be given at a dose of 5mg per pound twice daily on a full stomach for no more than two days.You can also give Diphenhydramine or Chlorpheniramine to help with a runny nose, etc. Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) can be given at a dose of 1mg per pound twice daily. The Chlorpheniramine can be given at a dose of 4mg twice daily.
