Medic4taz Posted December 16, 2008 Report Share Posted December 16, 2008 Ok... This is probably going to spur a bunch of positive and mostly negitive responses, but I would like to hear peoples opinions on this. We took our Kaycee to the Vet this weekend to get checked out and get her 10 week shots. She was fine the day she went to the vet, ok on sunday but today began to eat a lot less than she usually does and took quite a few naps ( light letharthy ). Called the vet to ask about the vaccines she received as well as the meds she was given for hook and tape worm ( heard these are common amongst puppies????) Anyways - the vet said Kaycee should be fine she probably has a fever ( checked - and yes she does ) and to give her INFANT TYLENOL @ 10mg per KG of weight. Now I have had many of dogs in my past and I have always heard TYLENOL was deadly to dogs. I was corrected by the vet who std that it is dangerous in large doses and in cats it is fatal even in small doses. Well I searched the internet and found a few sites ( very few out there on the positive ) most of the sites were STRONGLY against it at any and all costs!!!! But the few I found basically std the same thing -- it has to be dosed in the proper format and not via pill etc. Infant/Children's tylenol only. Well, we gave Kaycee her "correct dosage" and she seems to have perked up nicely. What is everyones opinion on tylenol? Was I wrong for what I did in following my vets directions???
