A dog can be given paracetamol but the paracetamol should not be given to a dog at home.

If the dog takes paracetamol the dog should be taken to the vet and a vet should only give the dog paracetamol.

When paracetamol is given to the dog in the right dosage it's safe for the dog to take.

However when you give paracetamol to the dog in too high of a dosage then the paracetamol becomes toxic to the dog and can kill the dog.

Some other safer medications you can give your dog for pain at home is Benadryl or Aspirin.

When your dog is in pain you can give your dog some Benadryl to help relieve the pain.

Benadryl is safe to give dogs for pain and you can give the dog 1 mg of Benadryl for each lb of weight the dog weighs.

You can also give your dog some aspirin to help relieve pain and you may need to crush the aspirin up in some wet dog food for the dog to take it.

You can also buy some aches and pains supplements for dogs online to help ease the pain in the dog.

Some side effects of Benadryl for a dog are rapid breathing, increased heart rate, dry mouth, sedation, Hypersalivation and Urinary Retention.

However Benadryl is pretty safe for dogs when given the proper dosage of the Benadryl.

A dog can have 1 mg of Benadryl for each lb of weight the dog weighs.

Dogs can have Benadryl for pain or anything else they need it for.

The recommended dosage of Benadryl for dogs is 1 MG of Benadryl for each lb your dog weighs.

If your dog is suffering from some pain and you want to help alleviate the dogs pain then you can give the dog dog Benadryl for pain.

The dosage of Benadryl for dogs is 1 MG per each pound of the dogs body weight.

If your dog is 10 lbs then you would give the dog 10 MG of Benadryl and if the dog is a 25 lb dog then you would give the dog 25 MG of Benadryl.

You can give the dog the recommended amount dosage of Benadryl 2 to 3 times per day.

Do not give the dog more than 3 doses of the Benadryl for the pain and if the pain persists in the dog then you should take the dog to the vet if possible to find out what is going on.

You can also give the dog some Aspirin to help with the dogs pain.
