Customer Question
My dog has a...

My dog has a toothache. what can i do to help? his jaw has a knot and I don't have the money to take him to the vet right now. I called my local vet and they won't see him without payment and I can't pay anything until I get paid next thursday and I know he's in pain. I also called a animal hospital that sometimes gives vouchers to help but they are not open today. Can you help me with a suggestion of something I can get him over the counter?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. How old is Hospital?

How old is the hospital?

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Hospital?

My dog's name is ***** ***** he's 4years old He doesn't have anything wrong with him. He's been healthy since I've had him.

I am sorry you are worried about Scooby being in pain. I hope you can get this knot on his jaw checked out soon.

How much does he weigh? The only over the counter medication that is safe to give to dogs is aspirin. Some dogs will vomit and can't take it, but if given with food it can be safe. No Advil, or Aleve. I need to know how big a dog he is to tell you a safe dose of aspirin.

He weighs about 16lbs
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 11 months ago

You can give 1/2 to 1 baby aspirin (low dose aspirin) with food, once to twice daily. If he vomits, do not give it again.
