The only safe pain over the counter medications for dogs is aspirin and this can be administered with a topical formula of steroid. An aspirin dose for dogs is 5 mg/ pound every 12 hours with food. If there is pressure within the eye such as glaucoma this needs to be diagnosed asap to begin appropriate therapy in order to salvage site but also reduce risk of the globe actually rupturing
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 massage the area around the eye and use cool compresses in 10 minute intervals if your pet will allow it to provide relief. Lastly keeping her in a dark room with little stimulation can also provide relief
Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance to you both today
