My 13 lb. Dachshund seems to have sprained her left front leg. She will squeal at times if I pick her up or she walks crooked on it. Is there any medication I can give her for the pain?

My dog was just I fight with another took her to the vet they said they gave her pain medicine injection and antibiotics when they brought her out to me I said she isn't right and then just fell over...she would not stand had a blank look and did not responde to me,they told me it looks like she is having a seizure something she never had before. She is a six year old boston and is so healthy. They told me she might be in shock from the trauma, but it was twos hours before I brought her in to the vet. Could this be from the pain medicine or antibiotic ? They said they are going to keep her over night to watch her, I'm scared to leave her there.

Our German Shepard has a foot that was stepped on by accident when he was little and he is now 8months old. We really can't afford a vet but is there something we can give him for pain because he is limping and I know it hurts him. Thanks

Outside temp dropped into the high 20's to mid 30's and my chihuahua was immediatedly affected. She cannot jump into my recliner or climb doorsteps without assistance. She does not limp, just seems to be unable to use her hind legs enough. Any help would be appreciated. I'm taking her to the vet the day after Christmas but feel sympathy for her pain right now.

Well. A vet that would mutilate your puppy for cosmetic reasons probably isn't the most stellar example of a competant nor compassionate practioner in his field anyway, is he. Vets who refuse to do unnecesary surgeries. If he's cutting your puppy's ears off for money, I doubt he cares that the dog's in pain.

More than not I am reading Tylenol can be fatal to dogs. I wonder how is it possible for Vets to have such opposite information???

Thank you so much for your website. Its after-hours and I can't see my vet until tomorrow. My dog hurt herself playing with her fur-brother and sisters. She seems to be fighting the pain and unless she gets really bad, I won't give her anything but knowing that a baby ASA will be OK for her (and within her weight limit) is comforting enough to make it until tomorrow's Vet appointment. Thanks again!

I have a 15 year old dog, every night she scratched the walls and rugs, walking back and forth and tail was down. Every night we are sleepless , so i tried to give her an over the counter buffered aspirin half dose in the morning and half before bed and one tab. of glucosamine half dose in the morning and half dose pm .I noticed she is less restless and can sleep better.

This article really helped me with my older Dalmatian who is at the end stage of her loyal life. I want to keep her as long as I can as long as we can control her pain.

Great info to know! My 15yr old pom/mix hurt his leg playing with my yr old chihuahua/poodle in the middle of the night. So I gave him a 80mg childrens tylenol crushed and mixed with peanut butter and it seemed like it helped within 30 mins.

whenever i give my mixed breed sheltie an asperin, i only give her a half of baby or low dose asperin in a small peice of cheese.(it goes down easier and doesn`t get spit out) i learned this from my mother many decades ago as i used to raise and breed full size collies and they are known for hip problems .but if your not sure,you should check with your vet doctor(this should be done anyways).this is only my opinion and shouldn`t be acted on what i have said.

That's great information to know. There's been times when our pets were obviously hurting, but nothing seriously, still if you touched them a certain way she would growl to let us know something bothered her. Vet gave her a good checkup found nothing. Next time this occurs, I will give her tylenol or bufferin. Wish I had know this sooner. Great tip, thanks for sharing that with us.

I keep a bottle of Bufferin in the cupboard for my dog. After an operation one time, the vet wouldn't prescribe pain med - said "dogs don't feel pain." Duh?! The poor guy came home and just couldn't get settled - so I gave him 1/2 a Bufferin tablet and he was comfortable in a short amount of time.

Excellent information!! I'm sure glad I didn't just cut some pill in half and dose him myself.

My dogs had a small scuffle and my pup tore her ear in the soft middle of the ear. I can see through it. She bled a little bit, but that stopped quickly. Do you suggest stitches?
