My elderly lurcher bitch (who hates vets) has hurt her front

Customer Question

My elderly lurcher bitch (who hates vets) has hurt her front leg, she is limping and is
in some discomfort. She hasn't lost her appetite. She is 14 years old. I am loathe to
take her to the vet as she gets very distressed. Is there perhaps a pain killer I can
buy to help her if she just needs rest?
