Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry to hear that Hades is not feeling well. There area couple things that will really help him and make him more comfortable.
Give Hades aspirin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs.
Give Hades a daily supplement of Glucosamine/Chondroitin which adds lubrication to his joints and decreases pain. This is available at the pet store.
If this is not enough, your vet will have stronger medications to help Hades and ease his discomfort.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
Sincerely, Dr. Loretta
Is aspirin safe for dogs?
