    Well, some say yes, some say no. On Petmed they say no, so I wouldn't

    I've read that aspirin is safe for short term use, a day or two, but never use Tylenol or Advil. If unsure ask your vet what he recommends.

    If you're using regular 'human aspirin' as a pain medication for dogs, the recommended dosage is..


    Between 5mg and 10mg per pound of body weight (maximum of 10mg) - given twice a day - that's one dose per 12 hours.


    It might help to know that a standard adult Aspirin tablet is 320mg and a baby aspirin tablet is usually 80mg. So, if you have a 40lb dog the recommended dosage would be 200mg given twice a day. 200 mg is 2 1/2 'baby' tabs.


    Anything over 30mg per lb is considered toxic!

    It's always best to stick with the ones that are for pets, but if absolutely needed aspirin can be given. 10mg/kg per body weight.

    @bullmama Abbott was still limping this am and was walking kinda on his toes so I called the vet and she gave me Vetprofen and told me if he's not better in a few days then she wants to see him. My parents bully sit during the day so I did a check on him at noon and he seems better so paws crossed. He is bigger than his sister but much more dainty. Lol..Thank you for asking about him
