I am sorry to hear Avery is painful. Unfortunately, we cannot prescribe medication via this format. This is a general info source. Avery's regular vet can call in a prescription for Tramadol to a pharmacy near you if they are open today or tomorrow after the holiday. Meanwhile, I would avoid Tylenol and Ibuprofen as they can be quite toxic to dogs.

Good luck to you and Avery.

Hi Eric,

I'm just following up on our conversation about Avery. How is everything going?
