For mild and temporary pain, you may give your dog pain relief medication to ease the symptoms. Your veterinarian may recommend over-the-counter medicines such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). You can also opt for joint supplements and natural oils.
Is there anything safe to give my dog for pain?
You can give your dog veterinary NSAIDs for pain. A veterinary NSAID is prescribed by your dog’s vet for specific types of pain. NSAIDs block the effects of pain-causing enzymes, allowing your dog to get around more comfortably.
