I'm sorry to hear of this with Yoda. You're necessarily constrained to dosing him with aspirin at 10 mg/lb with food twice daily, acetaminophen dosed at 7 mg/lb thrice daily, or a human narcotic you might have at home. Please let me know if that's the case and I'll see if I can give you a dose for Yoda. You must avoid the toxic ibuprofen and naproxen.
