I wouldnt give it without talking to your veterinarian first. Many drugs taken by humans cant be processed by dogs. Most reasons for hip pain in large dogs is either a hip dysplasia or arthritis. For these conditions I doubt chlorzoxazone (a muscle relaxer) will help. These are inflammatory conditions. Aspirin is fairly safe for use in dogs. The buffered type is best. You can give 10-25mg for each 2.2lbs two or three times a day. This will help keep your dog comfortable until you can get him to the vet for something better.
