Scary! I also can't believe the vet didn't look into it further. If I were in your position I would see the emergency vet for sure.

Do not ever give dogs regular Tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil/aleve (ibuprofen) as it is poisonous. Also, give your dog over the counter medication, even stuff that is "safe" for pets, can be dangerous because you do not know the dosage, and if your dog needed surgery or some sort of medication from the vet, they may have to wait up to 72hrs to perform the procedure/give the med, due to reactions to over the counter meds.
