Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello. My name is***** am happy to help you with your question. Give me just a moment to respond and type.
For the weekend, until your vet is open on Monday, you can use aspirin for her pain.
5-10 mg of aspirin per each pound of dog every 12 hours.
It has to be aspirin and no substitutes.
You can call your vet on Monday and ask for a refill.
Only vet clinics have vetprofen. It is not a human medication.
If she is really suffering you could take her into the ER clinic for more Vetprofen or something stronger.
But most likely the aspirin will help.
Also hold an ice pack over her knee for 20 minutes per hour until bedtime.
Does that make sense? Do you have any other questions?
