what pain relief for dogs muscle strain
Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today. As long as Kenco isn't vomiting and isn't currently taking any other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, then there are two over the counter options which can help with a strain or sprain. 1. Aspirin (the preferred choice)at a dose of 10 mg/lb twice a day or2. Acetaminophen at a dose of 5 mg/lb twice a dayBoth of these drugs should be given with food to avoid stomach upset. I wouldn't give Ibuprofen since there's such a narrow margin of safety.I would also leash walk only for 7-10 days and prohibit jumping off and on furniture, if at all possible. If improvement isn't seen within 2-3 days, then a vet visit may be prudent.I hope this helps. Deb
