Friend, it is best if you give Ace Buffered Aspirin, it will be more gentle on his stomach. The dose for a 40 lbs Ace is 325mg 3/4 of a tablet every 12 hours for 1 week. You can buy Buffered Aspirin over the counter in any pharmacy.

You can supplement with Cosequin (glucosamine) given at label dose. You can buy Cosequin online or in your local pet store.
