Please do not administer tylenol which can be very hard on the liver and kidneys. The only safe pain medication over the counter is aspirin.

An aspirin dose for dogs is 5 mg/ pound every 12 hours with food

Please let your veterinarian know that you have administered aspirin if you take your pet into the office because it will effect what medications would be dispensed since aspirin requires a “washout period” of 48+ hours prior to changing to another non steroidal such as rimadyl, metacam, previcox.

Administer aspirin with food and if you note any reduced appetite, vomiting, diarrhea with administration then please discontinue its use.

You can also do soft massage of the area and rotate warm and cool compresses in 10 minute intervals as well to provide relief

Please let me know how else I can assist you both today
