    DefaultQuestion about aspirin ...

    For the experienced owners out there ... have you ever given your dogs aspirin? We (thankfully) do not have a lot of experience with canine pain relief, so this topic is new to me.

    Ivy and Raleigh took a long walk in the woods (up and down hills, over fallen trees, the whole bit) ... we're noticing that Raleigh is feeling a bit stiff in the right front leg. There is nothing in his pad, no obvious injury, no wincing ... just stiffness. My in-laws (Flat-coat people ) recommended one Bayer aspirin.

    What do you think? ???

    I think that sounds right. They also have at the different pet stores asprin for animals - I use that instead of the "people" stuff. If you call your vet and ask they should be nice enough to tell you what to use (mine did)

    I would recommend Ascriptin which is aspirin with Maalox. Ask your vet about the dosage.

    i have used the canine aspirin too, with simon when he had an ear infection. they worked great.

    i think i remember hearing that if you use human aspirin, it should be buffered...?

    Bufferin or ascriptin. How old is he? He looks like a big fella so I would give him two. As with any other NSAID aspirin has side effects such as diarrhea and stomach ulcers. Watch him and make sure he is eating and acting normally.

    Thank you all for the input! I had not heard of ascriptin before now, so you have all been very helpful.

    Raleigh still seems sore but, thankfully, it has not developed into a limp or anything. I'm off to give him a puppy-massage.

    Thanks!

    P.S. WigWag ... Raleigh is 6, so we have been very fortunate that we have never had to consider pain relief for him before.

    Thanks!
