Hello and thanks for your question.

My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

Baby aspirin can be used in dogs, but makes many dogs vomit. It should be given with food, and stopped if there is any vomiting. How much does Storm weigh? You can try 1 baby aspirin per 15 to 20 pounds once to twice daily with food. Let me know if this helps and if you have any more questions I can answer.

Expert:  Rebecca replied 3 months ago.

There are safer medications than aspirin such as Meloxicam, carprofen, tramadol.
