Hi There,I am Dr. Denise and I am glad to assist you. Yes, your dog does need more. He can have 5 mgs per pound of body Weight of aspirin. we like to give buffered aspirin with a little food to spare him tummy upset. So for a 35 to 40 pound dog that would be 175 to 200 mgs of aspirin. You could either give one more of the 81 mg tablet now which is a slightly low dose or a third of a regular adult 325 mg tablet to get the proper dose He can have the 175 to 200 mgs twice a day.
