Hi all, my fur baby Goose injured his leg back in August and was given Loxicom for pain and inflammation which worked a treat and he was running around in no time.
He's very active and boisterous and a whole lot of fun, but him and his brother Maverick were messing about playing and Goose is limping again, I have a vet appointment but its not for 3 days is there any human pain relief I can give him.
His weight is 0.500kg.
Many thanks for reading..

If there's any swelling you can give any leftover loxicom you have, or you can pick up infant liquid ibuprofen (not Childrens) and his dose would be 0.25 ml every 4-5 hours until the swelling comes down. IF he's just limping and there is no real swelling, I would just wait and watch.

Well the actual name of the drug is ibuprofen but the brand names are different in the UK. Just make sure the only active ingredient is ibuprofen. Make sure you give it with food to avoid stomach issues.
