I'm sorry Chubby is seeming sore, and I think that is the best plan for seeing your vet tomorrow.

Ketorolac has not had much use in dogs especially in oral form, they seem to be more sensitive to it for GI effects and strain on the liver and kidney.

A better choice to tide him over would be Tylenol or acetaminophen until the doctor can evaluate him, do you have any of that on hand at home? Is he on any other medications right now?
