Can I give my 60 lb. retriever/springer spaniel 1 tablet of children’s chewable ibuprofen? Or children’s liquid (7.5 mL)?

I have read that small amounts of buffered ibuprofen is safe but wanted to make sure because I have also read it can be toxic to dogs.

She injured her leg or hip today and is limping pretty badly. We will go to the vet tomorrow but in the mean time were hoping to ease her pain.

It is not a good idea to give a dog any human medications like Advil (ibuprofen). At this point your best bet is to wait to see your vet in the morning.
