I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Rocco, please?

Yes, shaking and restlessness usually indicate pain but we'll need more symptoms - lameness, licking at an area, swelling, e.g. - in order to localize from where the pain is arising.

No licking. Walking slowly. It doesn't seem to be paw.

Thank you for the additional information. Soft tissue injury - sprain or strain, perhaps. You can see how aspirin dosed at 10 mg per pound of body weight with food at 12 hour intervals affects Rocco. You must avoid the toxic ibuprofen and naproxen. Acetaminophen is OK at 7 mg per pound of body weight (15 mg per kg of body weight) thrice daily but isn't antiinflammatory as is aspirin. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
