I wish I could.
There is no other safe info for me to provide.
There are no other non-steroidals I can offer. There is no other way for me to get the swelling down, plus I don't know the severity of the injury.
Money. It was never a money issue for me. $15. I don't get all that. I get a fraction. I enjoy answerng questions on the internet. I have a regular full-time job. Please, feel free to peruse the thousands of accepts and positive feedback I have received.
Some questions simply can't provide greater answers.
By the way, I never mentioned money. I believe you did:
"i'll try elsewhere for a little more indepth advice,guess you get what you pay for!!!"
It's like someone in the Army. Injury to the neck and they are bleeding
out. There is only so much a soldier can do in the field to help him. Same situation.
I can't even see or palpate the leg, which makes me at a further disadvantage.
Why do you think I would be able to give "more" useful information, just because I am spending more time? I'm not holding out on you. We are vets.
The care of my dog isn't your interest? Why. Because I can't offer more information or a solution to the problem. Isn't that a bit unfair to a vet who is trying to help over-the-internet.
Feel free to continue attacking me. I have thousands of accepts and incredible feedback, and I am very happy how I have helped those people. Hopefully, the points I have made above illustrate some basic points. Again, you inferred it was a money thing when you suggested you get what you pay for. You said that, not me....
If the aspirin does cause stomach upset, you can give any of the following antacids:
To help settle the stomach you could try one of the following drugs. My favorite product is Pepcid (an over-the-counter antacid).
Pepcid comes in 10mg or 20mg tablets. You can give it every 12 hours.
Actually, one other thought....
IF you have seen your vet in the last year. Call them. They can authorize you to get some prescriptions, maybe (if they are willing), over-the-internet.
However, they won't if the examine has not been in the past year (a legal thing).
They can give a much stronger non-steroidal and better pain medication.
