Can dogs have ibuprofen?
Dogs that are healthy and active tend to have higher levels of COX-2 in their tissues. The effect of COX-2 is not as pronounced in older dogs, making them more prone to health issues in their old age.
You need to be careful when using ibuprofen on your dog. It can be toxic if taken in large amounts.
It is best to avoid giving ibuprofen to dogs when they are sick, as the drug can make them sicker.
What about aspirin?
Aspirin is also a type of NSD (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug), but it is not as good of an anti-inflammatory as ibuprofen. This is because it only reduces the activity of the part of COX-2 that is linked to prostaglandins.
Aspirin also needs to be taken with food. Otherwise, it can cause stomach irritation and an upset stomach.
