Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello,Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is***** am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
I am sorry Owen's leg is bothering him. If he is licking, that might be where it hurts. If I could, I would do an exam of all the bones and joints in that leg from the toes to the hip to try to find where it hurts. He may. Have a sprain, an injured ligament, or a bruise.
You could try giving him a little aspirin to see if that helps. How much does he weigh?
He can take 2 baby aspirin or 1/2 regular aspirin once to twice daily with food. If he vomits do not repeat it. Do not give ibuprofen or Aleve to dogs.
If the aspirin does not help or only helps for awhile, I would have him checked out. Best to know what and where the problem is. I would give the aspirin only a day or two.
I hope you were able to see my response; I have not heard back from you! How is he doing? Let me know if I can answer any more of your questions.
