Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry to hear about your sweet Stella's condition...it is so terrible for her!! Morphine is a controlled medication and should NOT be given without the consent of your vet that had examined Stella. It is better to give aspirin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs as long as this can be given with food. This will act as an anti inflammatory medication and help ease Stella's discomfort. Benadryl also can be given at the same time at 1 mg per pound every 12 hrs to help her through the discomfort.
Prescription medications can be prescribed by your vet that will be stronger.Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
