Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs, help reduce swelling, stiffness, and joint pain in humans, and they can do the same for your dog.

Bland foods include boiled chicken, rice, and cottage cheese.

Make sure to continue giving your dog anti-nausea medication until he can hold down his normal food; this will typically take one or two weeks.

You will also need to continue any antibiotics that your vet prescribed until your dog has taken the full course.
