I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Such an injury can't be accurately assessed through a forum such as this. Aloha will need a thorough exam by a veterinarian who may also elect to X-ray Aloha's chest. The Rimadyl was reasonable but she may require a narcotic analgesic if the Rimadyl hasn't been helpful.
I regret that I can't be more specific for you from here. If you have an on-call vet available to you, please bring Aloha to that vet at your earliest convenience.
