Looks like some good advice on here. If you have more questions in regards to the care of your dog and want to check with other dog lovers, there is a community for that here:
Please NEVER give a dog medicines that are intended for humans. They can be extremely toxic. If your dog is in pain he/she desperately needs veterinary care. Not only for a suitable painkiller, safe for dogs, but for a diagnosis of what is causing the pain -or if the cause is known, an assessment of the current changes.
Treating pain in a dog is not always a straighforward thing. There are things to bear in mind.....for instance, some painkillers can interfere with blood clotting, and if your dog has a condition in which that is important, then giving him/her the wrong painkiller could even be lethal.
