Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!So sorry to hear Darla has injured herself! Can you please tell me where you would put her on the pain assessment form below?http://www.csuanimalcancercenter.org/assets/files/csu_acute_pain_scale_canine.pdf
Also do you have any pain medications at home previously prescribed for her, perhaps after a spay?
The tremors unfortunately are an indication of pain and I would like to determine if this is warrants a veterinary er visit or can wait until tomorrow. I assume you are on the east coast and it is almost 4 pm? Your vet is already closed for the day?If she is >2 on the pain assessment form, restless, unable to get comfortable then I would advise the er today or your local vet if they can fit you in the last hour of the day...Please let me know how else I can assist you both today, I truly hope she is feeling better soon
