Hello, I am sorry to hear you are worried about your dog. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. How much does she weigh?

Expert:  Rebecca replied 1 year ago.

The best treatment, of course, is to have infected or painful or loose teeth extracted, but I know that can be expensive. Aspirin may help with pain, but I need to know her size or weight to tell you if 81 mg is too much, or not enough.

She is about 40 lbs
Expert:  Rebecca replied 1 year ago.

Thank you. You can give her 2 of the 81 mg aspirin, up to twice daily, with a meal.

Expert:  Rebecca replied 1 year ago.

Antibiotics may help if any teeth are infected.
