What is safe pain relief for very small dogs?

What is a safe pain relief for very small dogs?

My 2-year old (5lbs, 8oz) hurt her leg and began limping.  We took her to our Vet and received Metacam 0.5mg to give her once daily.

I stopped giving it to her because I read in the information sheet that came with the medication that it could cause seizures, liver disease and/or kidney disease.

Is there something I can give her for pain and inflammation that doesn’t have so many side affects?

Thanks for your help.
