Dear Brandy,

It would be advisable to see your veterinarian for an evaluation. If no major abnormalities are found you might still want to see a veterinary chiropractor. They will help fix minor subluxations that would not be readily apparent to someone who has not studied chiropractic.

You should not give Motrin to your puppy. How did you determine the correct dosage for his body weight? A safer alternative is give homeopathic PROMAXOL which reduces pain and inflammation.

Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
