Hello. Thanks for the question. If you want to use something for pain, the only over the counter pain med safe in dogs is Aspirin. The dose in dogs is 5 mg per lb body weight every 12-24 hours, as needed. I would then talk to your vet when they open. Typically I'll use Gabapentin or Tramadol for chronic pain in dogs. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.

Thank you. I think she is also having a reaction from her shot of antibiotics as she is throwing up and has the diarrehea.The shot was covenia. Should i still give her the aspirin/ should i rub it on her gums or put it down her throat or wait for my vet in the morning?

In that case, I would go with Benadryl instead. That can help with any type of reaction to a medication. The dose of Benadryl in dogs is 1-2 mg per lb body weight. It can be given every 6-8 hours, as needed. In the morning, call your vet and explain things. They may want to start a probiotic at that time.
