what can i give my dog for pain tonight, until i get her arthritis med filled tomorrow.
Hello, I am Dr. Peter a licensed Veterinarian. I would like to help. I need to ask you a few questions to be well informed and give you the best advice. There is no additional charge for information request.1- What medication was/is she on?
i think the name was meloxicam
Unfortunately, there is nothing over the counter that you could give your dog for pain after being on Meloxicam. Most of the pain killers over the counter are toxic to dogs. In addition, being on Meloxicam it will increase the toxic potential. The only option would be going through an ER veterinary clinical where you can get the prescription refilled. Hope the above helps, if you have additional questions I will be glad to answer them. Dr. Peter
