Sandy Willis, DVM, DACVIM responded:
Hi, Sometimes it is just a strain or sprain but yes, if it continues, guess our little lady will have to go to the vet. We get asked about pain medications on this website and you have to be very careful giving human medications to any pets. While you are waiting call your veterinarian and ask for their recommendation on pain medications to see if they alleviate the problem. The veterinary ones are so much safe. Dr. Sandy
