Hi Pearl - Can I give my Border Collie paracetamol for pain in her leg? Also, should I give her a Lansoprozole in case it irritates her tummy? This is just tempoarary over the weekend whil;e we are away until I can take her to our vet for Metacalm. Many thanks . Jill
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is your dog's name and age?
Customer: Her name is***** is 13 years old. She had a bad break in her left hind leg about 8 years ago and is now starting to find it painful when she walks. I don't have any metacalm with me as we are away for a few days so want to give her something to relieve the pain until I can get to my own vet on Monday.
JA: Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: No wounds
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Lola?
Customer: No
