Hi, this is Dr. Gabby.
To prevent infection I would do 500 mg of Cephalexin every 12 hours for 7 days. Give it with food to help prevent gastrointestinal upset.
The only safe over the counter pain medication you can give dogs is aspirin. 325 mg every 12 hours with food.
Dogs can NOT take ibuprofen, advil, norco, or flexeril. All are toxic.
Does that help? Do you have any additional questions?
