my poodle is limping a little bit

and until i take her to vet on monday what can i give her for the pain? we put a dog run up that she tries to escape from and i think she may of injured herself. i'm thinking she bruised or pulled something. i have been gone all day so i don't know if anything else is out of her behavior.

  • If you have a petsmart of petco near you, they sell doggie aspirin. Hope she's ok!

  • My dog broke her toe in 3 places and all she did was limp. No crying or whining. She needed to go to the vet.

  • Do not give her Advil or Tylenol! You can give a Buffered Asperin but you do not want to give it to often because that can ever be hard on there stomache but it is safe to give. What kind of poodle is toy minature or standard because that will determine how much to give. if it is a standard poodle you can give 1 pill but if your dog is smaller i would get a pill cutter.
