This is my kid.

    Have the vet prescribe him some tramadol, it's the exact same as we use and it's probably the easiest pk on the stomach around, it's even prescribed for stomach pain sometimes. When I had bleeding ulcers it was all the doctor would prescribe to me.

    @Tbm the same thing happened with my black lab. Poor thing broke its hind legs chasing after a duck. The vet prescribed tramadol, as was suggested already. I put it in his food and he was noticeably better after the first dose. He even came out hunting with me :-) (I didn’t let him chase anything though). Tramadol would be my recommendation as well.

    Thank you for the advice. Did it upset his stomach?

    @Tbm , I agree, tramadol. My brothers German Shepherd had bad hips and arthritis so painful that he wouldn't sit or lie down. Poor baby... Tram was the only thing that helped him. It didn't upset his stomach. Mixing with food is probably best. Good luck with your baby..

    I don’t know if you’ve ever seen that show Dr Jeff rocky mt vet? He’s the mother Teresa of vets. Anyway he recommends cbd oil as well for pain medication in dogs. I also just started my dog on metacam. It’s a liquid and has already helped her, but you may already be familiar with it? It’s an nsaid so it may affect your dogs stomach. It’s supposed to be easy on stomachs tho for an anti inflammatory.

    Good luck!!

    My older dog has severe stomach issues and takes tramadol every day no problem. He also goes to the vet for cold laser on his joints and that seems to work as well. And I put a heating pad on low setting for 20 minutes every night.

    We've been using CBD with one of our dogs for arthritis. Not sure if its working though. We're getting to the point where I'm not sure if she would keep her in pain anymore. It's so sad.

    He was on it for the duration of his recovery, and he never had any problems eating or with digestion. Of course, dogs are different, so ask the vet. I’ve heard good successes with CBD too.

    It is bloody tragic when you have to decide what's in the best interest of your little mate. It would have to be one of the worst decisions we have to make. All the best.

    Please take your dog to the vet and let him/her decide what to prescribe. There are several options, if one doesn't work.
    I worry when people self medicate their animals.

    I totally agree. Drs can rx 2-3 different medications that work on different pain receptors..
    Never give Advil...Tylenol.....or Alive.

    so my other hound had a tumor cut off his tail last week. it isn't in pain anymore. my other hound cut his foot open last night and got the bleeding stopped and cleaned and he kept crying. i gave him the dogs tumor surgery pain meds one does and he was out walking around. i hate playing Dr only problem is now that hound has gas and is dropping biscuits. i put him in the room with wife she can deal with it.

    Dont call PETA. these pups are all i got.

  17. I think the best bet is always to take your pet to the vet and let them make the call, however I have an 18 year old mutt and she is my "furry kid".
    She got pneumonia at 4 years of age and the vet gave me keflex antibiotic and cataflam (NSAID) pain reliever.
    The keflex alone cost $178 for a two week supply! I can't remember how much the cataflam cost.
    When she would get the coughing and not feeling well, I'd purchase the exact amount of keflex from an online vendor and titrate DHC at 2-4 mgs and she has made it to 18.
    CBP oil is not available or I'd given her that. I didn't know about tramadol and that's good to know in the future.

    When ur rx'd a human drug. Like cephaloxin......ask for a written Rx. And price shop. Usually u can get it in the 4 to 5 dollar range.
    Good rx is a good place to start.
