Hello, this is Dr. KV. Welcome to JustAnswer. I am reviewing your question right now and will respond to you in just a moment...
I am sorry to hear Molly is feeling painful. Thank you for recognizing that she is in need of pain medication. Older dogs can benefit greatly from arthritis supplements and medications, however, Advil is NOT SAFE for dogs. There are several safe NSAIDs that can be given that are specially made for dogs. Your vet will be able to prescribe one of these safer options for her.
Generic meloxicam tablets are $4 at Target for a bottle of 30. This would likely be a 2 month supply for her.
