Hi, I can help you with your question today.
How much does Joey weigh?
I'm sorry for the delay, I stepped away to help a patient.
For a 21kg dog, you can give 250mg acetaminophen (over the counter) every 12 hours as needed for pain.
Be careful not to exceed this dosage, and do not give it more often than twice daily.
This is the only over the counter human medication I would consider. You can also obtain prescription medications from your regular vet.
I typically use medications like carprofen, meloxicam and deracoxib for this purpose.
If these are not sufficient, your vet can also prescribe additional medications such as tramadol or gabapentin.
