Weenie dog moaning in pain and slighty limping

Help. We are on vacation, literally, in the middle of no where...like hours out four wheel drive through snow we can get stuck in. No answer at our vets. My weenie dog started moaning in pain in the middle of the night. When i got her up she continued to moan and was limping. The moaning got a lot worse now. I have human benadryl tablets, hydrcodone, and ibuprofen with me. Can i at least make her comfortable qith these until i can get her to help? Please help me!

Sorry I didn't finish my reply....Don't give her Hydrocodone either! Can you get to the nearest town, and to a vet there?
Benadryl is safe for dogs The dosage is 1mg per 1pound body weight. But I seriously doubt it will have any effect on severe pain like this. She either has a very bad sprain...or she has a dislocation?....or it could be arthritis pain? Or she could have a spinal problem. I would keep her as still as possible until you can manage to reach a vet.
I hope she'll be OK.

Don't use Ibuprofen. Is it possible to get some aspirin? That's safer for dogs. Ibuprofen is toxic. I hope I haven't caught your question too late....
