Hello and thank you for using this site to help you. For pain you can give plain aspirin and I will direct you to a link for dosing and other information.

If this is the rear leg, and if the dog is holding it up at times you may be looking at a torn cruciate ligament which usually requires surgery.

Aspirin and dosing . Do not gie tylenol or Ibuprofen products
