Hello, I looked over the question you sent.
This is a case that requires an appointment with a veterinarian.
Tylenol contains acetaminophen, which is toxic to dogs.
Acetaminophen is generally considered toxic to dogs at doses above 30-50 mg per kilogram (13-22 mg per pound).
In particular, young puppies can be more sensitive.
Signs of toxicity such as gasping, abdominal pain, vomiting, bloody diarrhea, fever, drooling, anorexia, and lethargy may occur within 12 hours of ingestion. In severe cases, liver damage or anemia may occur. Observe him carefully for 48 hours and head to the ER if any strange behavior occurs.
Please do not hesitate to ask any further questions you may have. Thank you.
