the dog likes to kiss my sore areas ex. hands, feet, elbows, and knees I just started using the voltaren gel how long do I have to keep him away from me after i apply the gel. I need to use it 2 times a day
You know, your dog may be doing more healing for you than any medication could. Dog's saliva is said to have so many healing properties - that's why a dog will lick their wounds - they are healing themselves better than any creams or compresses could. You may not be able to use the Voltaren gel, and have your dog. The gel will remain on your skin - it doesn't get absorbed to any amount that your dog wouldn't be affected by it - the gel will poison him. If he is accustomed to licking these areas you are going to have a tough time retraining him, especially if he still senses you are hurting there. I would say you need to look for a different medication, one taken by mouth. Sounds like you've got a great dog there, and you dont want anything to happen to him.
