    My 14 year old Yorkie was attacked by my neighbor’s Boxer today. She was bleeding from the mouth and one of her canines was hanging, so I rushed her to the animal ER. She’s okay, thank God, but the vet prescribed her 20 mg of Galliprant after pulling her tooth for pain and inflammation. I’ve read that 8-15 lbs dogs should only take half of a 20 mg tablet, and my yorkie is barely 4.5 lbs. I only gave her half today, but I’m scared she’s in pain. Has anyone given their smaller yorkies 20 mg of this medication??

    I really think this is something you need to ring your vet about, it's not really something we can advise on as we are not professionals.

    Hope your little one recovers quickly.

    Did your vet tell you to half the tablet or give a whole one?
