Hi I am Drl. Mathews and i can offer some advice. I am so sorry for you and Bella.

I can not advise you to give bella your medication but oxycodone can be used in dogs.

You can call your vet that you have relationship with and they can help you with a dose.

Again I am sorry for you both. And if you need more advice please type back. Otherwise a 3-5 star rating is the only way this site compensates me for speaking with you, and it is very appreciated. Let me knwo if you need any more help.
