No. Not unless a vet has told you it`s OK. Why not just phone the vet and ask?
eta - is there a local animal rescue you can talk to - they usually know the cheapest vets.

It is not wise to give dogs human painkillers.

No offence intended, but could I ask why your stray dog, who I assume you have taken to be your own (you say you own a street dog) is any different to any other dog. You say you want to keep things "as cheap as possible". Would you feel differently with a more "valuable" dog? - Surely they should all be worthy of the same treatment.

No. Many human pain meds can kill your dog. If your dog is in pain, she needs to see a vet. It doesn't matter where she came from, she's a living creature and if you've taken her in, you need to take care of her. If you can't, then turn her over to a rescue group that can.

Yes you can give dogs some human meds...although most are not recommended. What is wrong with the dog ? If you would like to be spared the judgement, it would probably be better to use the Message system.
