Customer Question

My 12 year year olf Bichon just had two teeth removed about 14 hours ago and she whining in pain, but I wasn't given any thing or directions to help her. it is 4 and I don't know how to help her. What cn I do?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?

Abby

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Abby?

She hadn't been feeling good for quite some time, but the blood work was good.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner and I'm dismayed to hear that an analgesic wasn't prescribed for Abby to be taken after her extractions. Aspirin dosed at 10 mg/lb with food at 12 hour intervals should be helpful. Acetaminophen is OK at 7 mg/lb thrice daily but isn't antiinflammatory as is aspirin. You must avoid both ibuprofen and naproxen as they're toxic to dogs. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
