Q. My pitt just got hit my a car what can I give her for pain...she is scraped up pretty bad and it too late to go get her something so what can I give

A. You need to take her to your emergency vet immediately. The most concerning thing at this stage would be shock which needs to be treated straight away as that can be fatal even if she isn't showing any signs. The vet will then be able to provide appropriate pain relief and check for internal bleeding and fractures.
