Welcome to Justasnwer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!
I am sorry to hear Daisy in in pain. I definitely would try to get in prior to two weeks out, even if it is a drop off so that she can get on safer pain medications than over the counter
The only safe over the counter pain medications is aspirin
An aspirin dose for dogs is 5 mg/ pound every 12 hours with food
Please let your veterinarian know that you have administered aspirin if you take your pet into the office because it will effect what medications would be dispensed since aspirin requires a “washout period” of 48+ hours prior to changing to another non steroidal such as rimadyl, metacam, previcox.
Administer aspirin with food and if you note any reduced appetite, vomiting, diarrhea with administration then please discontinue its use.
You can also use massage in a circular pattern over the area as well as rotate warm and cool compresses in 10 minute intervals if she will allow it
Please let me know how else I can assist you both today
