How long has this been going on?
No other problems.

She is no other medications.
She began showing signs of discomfort last night.
Is your dog still eating and drinking well?
She seems to be drinking, but I have been at work all morning. She ate a salmon treat and enthusiastically ate a piece of cheese wrapped around the aspirin.
You can safely give your dog 1/4 to 1/2 a buffered aspirin (adult aspirin is 325mg) once to twice a day. Just make sure she continues to eat and drink well. You do not want to spoil her with rich or unusual foods but if you need to feed her softer items until the veterinarian arrives in your area go ahead.
There are some antibiotics that can be used but I would hold off since you will see a veterinarian in a week.
If I can answer anything else please let me know.
That is something that I am not allowed to do by law. But I would bet the veterinarian that travels into your area may be allowed to do that. I do not have a license to practice in Alaska. Only Pennsylvania.
