Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
There are two reasons why aspirin should not be used for Lexie. First, she just had surgery and we do not want to give a blood thinner which may cause bleeding to occur. Secondly, aspirin should not be used with rimadyl, if it can be avoided. If she is still in a great deal of pain, talk to your vet about prescribing a pain medication like tramadol to help with her comfort level.
