Should I stop giving my dog her pain meds?

I feel like the pain meds are making her think she can move her body freely, which has ripped the stitches out twice already...

Or would pain make her actually move even more?

But considering "The presence or absence of anti-inflammatory pain meds often has very little impact on the activity level of a normally active dog. Active dogs will remain active despite mild to moderate pain." then I guess stopping won't change anything
