Customer Question
My service dog is...

My service dog is having lots of pain. He is 14 and having such a hard time moving around. I would like to hive him 1/2 of a Norco. It contains Hydrocodone and 325 ancetaminfin. So if I cut the pill in half he would get 5mg of codeine and half of the 325 ancetaminfin. Please help.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Is the dog bleeding a lot?

Oh no he just has weakness, started limping today.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Harley he has been my service dog for 16 years.

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

No he's very healthy. We do give him baby a spin at bedtime but this limp is very new.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. You're constrained by the acetaminophen dose which shouldn't exceed 7 mg per pound of body weight. How much does Harley weigh, please?
