My animal is in pain, can I give her something from my medicine cabinet?

Most likely, No.

•Ibuprofen (aka Advil or Motrin) can definitely be toxic to dogs, cats, and other pets–even in small amounts. Depending on the dose ingested, significant gastrointestinal damage or even kidney damage could result.

•Tylenol can also be toxic to dogs and especially cats.

•If you feel that your pet needs pain relief for any reason, we highly recommend that you get in touch with your veterinarian–even if you have not already. NEAH can direct you regarding the best dose to use or, if necessary, can prescribe a pain reliever.
