How much aspirin or ibuprophen can I give my 10 lb. mini schnauzer? She is 10 years old and hurt her leg.

Hi, I am Dr. Peter and would like to help. In response to your question, You should not use Ibuprofen, can be very easily toxic to dogs. Could use Buffered Apirin 5 mg per pound every 12 hours with food. Try not to use for more then 1 weeks as can cause GI irritation.
