Hello, I am sorry to hear you are worried about Lucy. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. What is the pain pill from the other dog? Is Lucy the same size as the other dog? If you look at her gums, do they look pink or do they seem pale? If she is not eating and drinking, I am worried about dehydration. If she will take it, try to get her to lap some water, broth or Pedialyte. Can you take her temp with a thermometer? Normal is between 101 and 102. If she is under 100, she is probably dehydrated. If she is over 103, she has a fever. Let me know how her gums look, and what the medication you gave is.
