My yellow lab is about 11 years old and has bad hips.She hurt her leg yesterday and is limping pretty bad, but we can't take her to the vets until tomorrow. I want to know if it is safe to give her a small dose of xanax or a muscle relaxer to calm her dog so she is not constantly trying to get up and down because she is having a hard time walking. I just want to calm her down so she does not hurt herself anymore..please help!!
