NSAID’s for Caesarians

A question I always have and have always wanted an answer to (but I suspect I know the answer to and that I should not!) Can I give a one off NSAID dose to a post caesarean? If not, then what pain relief can I give because I think it’s cruel to just send off on tramadol which sucks. Right now I do give a one off low dose of 0.1mg/kg meloxicam but I don’t know if that is dangerous to the puppies?
