Hello & welcome....Don't give up.....There are other choices for pain
control......So your Vet sent you away without anythin
g for your dog?
I believe what your Vet is sayin
g is no anti-in
flammatory (NSAID) drugs like Rimadyl, Metacam, Previcox, etc. because of the way they are processed & possible side effects
.....However, that does NOT mean that your dog cannot have just pain
My choice would be "Tramadol", but I'm sure there are others....
