ibuprofen should not be used unless recommended by your veterinarian. Ibuprofen has a narrow therapeutic index in domestic small animals and very small changes in the dosage level can lead to toxicity. Ibuprofen should not be used in animals with known hypersensitivity or allergy to the drug, its components, or other NSAIDs.

Always give with food. The usual dose in dogs is 2.5 to 4 mg per pound (5 to 8 mg/kg) every 12 hours.
