Allie has soft tissue damage on her right rear hip/leg area. She had to go to the emergency vet on Sunday. They gave her vetprofen and tramadol. Today is tuesday and i called her regular vet and he said to give her 1 advil every 12 hours. He said to stop the tramadol. And the emergency vet only gave her 3 vetprofen pills. So she is done with those.Ok so my question is should I give her arnica montana also with the advil? And how many pills? Or should I stick with just the advil. Any suggestions would be helpful.

You can start with Arnica for the trauma, pain and swelling, but then I would move on with Calendula to speed up the healing process and prevent any scaring.
If you do give her arnica, I would only give her the other pain meds if <u>really</u> necessary.
