Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today.
As long as the Metacam was prescribed for Hershey in the past, then yes, you could try to see if it helps keep him a little more comfortable.
That being said...if he's still acting painful tomorrow when your normal vet opens, you should have them take a peek at him, just to make sure that he didn't hurt his back like these long-backed dogs are prone to do.
Also, if he stops being able to stand, or becomes more painful, then you may want to have him seen by an emergency vet today, rather than waiting to see his vet tomorrow.
I hope this helps.
Yes, it's possible he hurt his tail when he fell off the chair.
