Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
I am sorry to hear you are worried about Clyde. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
Did the vet that diagnosed the fractured tooth send any pain medication at all: carprofen, meloxicam, tramadol? If not, the only over the counter medication you can use in dogs is aspirin, and aspirin can make him bleed more when his tooth is extracted.
How much does he weigh? Do you happen to have any tramadol on hand for people?
You could give a baby aspirin with some food. Do not give Tylenol or Advil or Aleve. How soon is the extraction?
How is Clyde doing today? Can I help with anything else?
