Aspirin and Human Painkillers: Why You Shouldn't Give Them to Your Dog

What Should Dog's Have for Discomfort?

It's late at night and your dog is whimpering, limping, and showing other signs of discomfort. As you check your medicine cabinet, you realize that you don't have any pain medicine for dogs. Can you give a dog aspirin and adjust the dose for your dog's size? What can you do to give your dog some pain relief?

Can I Give My Dog Human Painkillers?

Long story short: your dog cannot have human painkillers or medications! Your dog has his own body chemistry that is completely different than a human's. While aspirin or ibuprofen may make your headache go away or take the sting off of a tough workout, these medications can be toxic to your dogs. Human NSAIDs are completely different than NSAIDs for dogs. Giving your dog human medications can cause many negative side effects, including:

  • Diarrhea and vomiting
  • Lethargy
  • Seizures
  • Weakness
  • Death

It is far better to plan ahead for your dog's pain—since it's an inevitable part of pet ownership and keep something on hand for the occasion. Giving your dog human medications may be ineffective at best and deadly at worst.

What Can My Dog Take for Discomfort?

Luckily, there are several options that you can investigate in terms of pain medicine for dogs. You may need to try different medications and tricks to help your dog manage his pain. There are several options you can try:

  • Dog-specific NSAIDs: Though dogs cannot have human NSAID medications, there are dog NSAID medications that you can keep around for short bouts of pain. These NSAID medications work in much the same way as human medications. They can be wrapped in food and given to your dog. When taken, they can offer short-term pain relief for minor conditions.
  • Ice and rest: If you would prefer to stay away from medications, ice and rest can help your pup deal with mild to moderate pain. Icing a stiff or sore joint may offer temporary relief. Of course, the trick is getting your dog to just relax instead of running around and playing! If your dog is cooperative, this can be a natural and medication-free choice.
  • Natural painkillers: Nature has given us plenty of ways to manage your pup's pain. There are many herbs and nutrients that can help your dog's body naturally fight off discomfort. These supplements can work with your dog's body to support them, rather than just mask it. Elimay Discomfort Supplements offer high quality natural ingredients to help reduce and manage your dog's discomfort.

    • DLPA:Amino acids are the building blocks of life. Giving your dog a boost of amino acids can activate the body's painkilling response, help the body heal from injuries or illness, and help the body produce endorphins. DLPA works as a natural analgesic to clear up your dog's pain.
    • Turmeric: Good food and enough food can pump up your dog's health and energy levels! Choose a food that is suited to your individual pup's size and health need, avoiding foods that are full of fillers and artificial ingredients.
    • Exercise: Turmeric is one of the most trusted natural remedies for pain. Turmeric can minimize inflammation and get rid of pain caused by joint or muscle inflammation. Regular usage can also clear up limping and muscle stiffness.
    • Boswellia: This natural plant, like turmeric and DLPA, is a natural painkiller. However, it also helps to heal inflamed tissue. In particular, it may be beneficial for arthritis pain and cancer pain.
