Is there any pain medicine I can give to my dog that doesn't have to perscribed by a vet?

I have a puppy about 4 months old who was rufted up by a bigger dog. He's sore and needs a little help. He's not bad enough to take to a vet ,but it seems like I've been told that I could give baby asprin or something, but I forget all the details. Could someone Please give me some INFO?

  • Baby motrin or tylenol. Try to find the pills, they work better for dogs. If you cant find any of that then just cut a regular one in to quarters.

    I just spoke to my vet the other day, asking same question. He said asprin only. My dog is 100 lbs so He said I could give her 2 buffered asprin a day. No tylenol!!!!

  • Tylenol is toxic to dogs. But regardless you're puppy should be to the vet. The above poster is right. There could be internal bleeding.

  • You can NOT give motrin. I am not sure if it is tylenol or aspirin that they can have. I would check first. I know motrin can damage their liver.
