    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I have a 14 year old English setter who I juried his shoulder yesterday in the snow/ice. What over the counter drug can I give for pain? He can bear weight, just is very uncomfortable and whines occasionally .

    Here's a great article on dog pain management:

    It looks like buffered aspirin is one of the mroe easily available items. Though, you would want to make sure the dog didn't overexert once his pain is less. Hope he feels better soon!
