I have oxycodone hcl 5 mg, would that help to calm, let him rest??
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I don't think I have any gas x relief, or anything like that. He isn't crying or in apparent pain -
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
But he has been on his feet for hours, can't lay down, panting and panting. Don't know what brought it on - none of the usual running after eating, etc.
