What can I give my dog for pain right now?
There are some of the available NSAIDs just for dogs:

What human medicine can you give a dog in pain? The less movement and strain on its sore joints, the better. As far as medications go, there are no human medicines that are totally safe to give to pets. However, for short-term care, a human non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) such as Aspirin or Advil can be safe for your adult pet.
Can dogs have Tylenol for pain? That means some medications that are safe for people can be toxic to dogs or can even kill them. Never give your dog the most common over-the-counter human pain relievers: Acetaminophen (Tylenol) Ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin)
How can I relieve dog pain? At home, you can help relieve your dog’s pain by heat or cold packs, massages, nutritional dog supplements, and weight management. Alternative therapies such as acupuncture and hydrotherapy are available options for pain relief for dogs. Just ask your vet for a referral.
