I don’t know the name of it because I don’t have it in front of me I give it to after she eats
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 10 months ago

I'll need the information from that medication. Is there someone at home or near the vial that can share the information back for you?

It’s called maticam an antibiotic
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 10 months ago

Metacam, by chance? If so, this is an NSAID, not an antibiotic.

a antibiotic he gave me both
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 10 months ago

Okay, with that information, we can move forward.

Unfortunately, she's going to be painful for weeks to come and I would talk to your vet about using more than just an NSAID for her if she's non-weight bearing on one of her limbs. She would benefit from pain medication, as well, such as tramadol, gabapentin, etc. She does need to be kenneled for the next 6-12 weeks as she recovers. You may wish to consider sequestering her to a small empty closet or similar if she prefers not to be in a kennel. It's imperative that she does not jump and cannot fall off of anything, so no sleep on furniture or in bed. The less strong activity the better. If she's apt to be active, talk to your vet about acepromazine to calm her enough for rest, as well.

I hope this information has been helpful. I will be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further.

Until you issue a rating, the website will not compensate me for helping you. You will still be able to chat with me even after issuing a rating at no further charge on this thread.

I will also check in with you over the next few days to be sure you don’t need any additional assistance. If you would like to request me in the future for pet-related questions, you can do so by accessing this page: http://www.justanswer.com/pet/expert-pitrottmommy/?rpt=3800
