    Defaulthelp, out of pain meds what else can i do

    Axl is out of his pain meds and we don't have an emergency type place where we live. I think he must have slid on the ice while playing today because he is favoring his back leg. Is there anything I can give him until tommorrow. I did give him a benedryl hoping it would make him sleepy and keep him calmer.

    Only aspirin. Did he see the vet for his meds before?

    I would just crate him or restrict his movement until you can get to the vet. Pain isn't necessarily a bad thing, particularly if there is a soft tissue injury.. being aware that he hurts will (theoretically) stop him from overdoing it.

    Ditto to what Kaytris said.

    Pain can be the friend that prevents those movements/activities that could cause more injury.
