What Can I Give My Dog For Pain? | Ibuprofen, Aspirin? | Safe? - FlexPet
My 8 year old 55 pound female dog snagged one of her nails and it broke off last night. It was bleeding for a minute or two and has not since. She is in pain and she will let out a little whine once in while. It’s her paw, I guess you would consider it her thumb, so she isn’t limping. The end of what is left of her nail is pink. Can I give her anything over-the-counter for pain?
