Cyclobenzaprine is not a good choice for dogs because it can cause agitation, disorientation, and increased vocalization.

any thing I can give her over counter that is safe till the dr office opens tomorrow
Expert:  Dr. Jen replied 7 years ago.
I wouldn't recommended any over the counter pain medication because they can cause problems and also interfere with anything your vet may want to give her tomorrow. If there is not an emergency clinic open now that you can take her to you might want to try passive heat such as a warm water towel on her neck or a heating pad on low wrapped in a dry towel. (Don't leave her unattended with the heating pad, though).
