Sky hurt herself and limping quite a bit. Will let it rest over the weekend, but will most likely take her to the vet on Monday. In the meantime would like to know what I can give her for pain/inflamation. Thanks

Most veterinarians recommend between 5 mg and 10 mg per pound of the dog's weight every 12 hours. Going on the safe side, a recommended dosage of aspirin of about 5 mg/lb seems to work well for most dogs. If you are going to give more, it is a good idea to check with your vet. Also, note that a small dog should take less per pound.

Enteric coated aspirin is not recommended in dogs because about half the time the coating isn't digested and the aspirin is excreted whole in the stool.
