    I have been giving my dog Tylenol based on this list, I was just told by my vet that it is toxic to animals and could have killed him.

    I've seen some vets say it's ok and some say that it's not. Was told to regulate the dosage by the dog's weight. Personally I'd like to see a full consensus of yes or no instead of half for it and half against it.

    I was told only a children's tylenol due to the significantly lower dosage.

    I am digging into it now to see if I can come up with something more concrete and I will update what I hear. It is deadly for cats though.

    Children's Tylenol and only for a limited time... If he/she needs constant pain management you need to get a formula from your vet. It WILL kill cats... That's apples and oranges... Cat's have a much smaller listing of OTC drugs that are safe.

    I can find you references but the above is what I've read time and time again.
