I am sorry to hear you are worried about Jenna.

How much does she weigh? The most effective and safe pain medications are by prescription, from your veterinarian. Until then you can try aspirin, but I need her weight to give you a dose.

Do not give Advil or Tylenol.

Bite wounds often get infected and she may need antibiotics.
