Thank you very much,

I am a licensed veterinarian, and I'll be happy to help you in any way I can.

Celebrex is NOT considered safe for use in dogs, due to the significant risk of intestinal ulceration or perforation, and possible kidney or liver damage.

Morphine is occasionally used for pain control in dogs, but carries many side effects such as constipation and nausea, so it's far from being a first-line treatment. I cannot legally provide you with a dose for a controlled substance like Morphine. You can find dosing information at this link:
