Extreme puppy teething, cries when he's biting. Really distressing to listen too Vet gave him the loxicom on Friday but hasn't helped at all
Hi, Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm a licensed veterinarian and I'll be happy to help. I'm so sorry to hear about your pup's severe discomfort. Loxicom (or meloxicam) is a doggy ibuprofen that works for 12 to 24 hours, so the injection he got on Friday would be worn off by now. We do offer meloxicam in pill or liquid oral form, so that sounds like it would be best for your pup. You probably are doing so, but he should be eating either a watered down form of his dry food, or canned food for now.
Thank you very much for your help. He now has 2 top teeth missing just hope the fangs follow shortly ;)
