Always be very careful what you give your Bulldog. What may be “ok” for you to eat may not be ok for your dog.
If you feel you need to give your Bulldog a pain relief drug, please talk to your vet first.
Acetaminophen is registered for use in human’s only by the FDA. Not animals. A vet may prescribe acetaminophen for your Bulldog as an extra-label drug, but the dosage is likely to be just 5 – 7.5 mg per lb. An average Bulldog is ~50 lbs (French Bulldog’s are ~20 lbs). That means, the average Bulldog would likely be prescribed just 250 mg (French Bulldogs would be ~100 mg). 1 tablet of regular strength Tylenol contains 325 mg and extra strength contains 500 mg.
Just 1 regular strength tylenol tablet contains more acetaminophen that a vet may prescribe your Bulldog!
Acetaminophen poisoning in dogs is too common because too many people leave drugs like this laying around and their dog gets into it … or they give their dog too much of it because they aren’t aware of the information that you have just learned.
If you also own cats – you need to really watch out. Cats are extremely sensitive to acetaminophen – and 99.99% of guidance will tell you to never give your cat Acetaminophen, no matter what.
Signs of Acetaminophen poisoning can be:
- Dry eyes
- Lethargic activity
- Acting like their drunk
- Black, tar-like poop
