Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but wanted to touch base with you about Peanut.

Now if he is in severe pain, it would be worth having him seen by a local urgent care vet to avoid him suffering. Otherwise our only home option would be to use a low dose of Aspirin (More Info/Dose HERE) every 12-24 hours after food. Of course, if you use this make sure his vet is aware when he is seen as they will have to adjust what pain relief they use for him until this is out of his system (where they'll have to avoid non-steroidal anti-inflammatories and use Tramadol or Buprenorphine for the short term) to avoid any interaction. But that would be our one option at home at this stage.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
