Dog owners! I have a question for ya! UPDATE! The vet called!
My dog, Laney, is a chocolate lab. She has hip dysplasia. She has had aches and pains on and off for a while now but yesterday she started some serious pain. She has done nothing but limp, favor her right back leg, whine constantly, leaving little sweat drops all over the house. She is miserable, as well as me. I hate seeing her in pain like this. I called the vet about 20 mins ago. They werent in just yet but the receptionist said she would have them call me back soon. I asked her if there was any way I could give her motrin or something that i have for us, to give her for her pain until I can get her in to them in two weeks.
I have always heard that you can not give dogs human pain reliever, it will kill them if not done right. But a friend of mine claims she gives her dogs that all the time for pain. I just want to know if you have given your animal human pain reliever, how much, how long and what was the outcome? Waiting on vet to call me back is killing me!
The vet says I can give her 325 mg tabs of buffered asprin, 1 to 1 1/2 tabs twice a day after a meal, until I get her in in two weeks. Thanks for the replies ladies!
