what can i give a dog for pain

I have an appointment to see the Vet for my 9 year old Beagle, Today he started to limp on his front paw/leg. I want to know if there is something I can give him for pain until he can see his vet?

please don't give him anything until you see the vet- a lot of over the counter pain meds interact with veterinary painkillers badly, so if you give him anything now, they might not be able to treat him with anything more effective when you get there.

White willow bark works great, give him about 3-4 capsules and it'll take the pain right away. White willow bark is a natural aspirin and can be given to dogs and people, it's a great pain reliever and is good for you.
