is liquid aspirin bad for dogs
Hello,

It is not recommended to give tablet or liquid aspirin to dogs unless prescribed by a vet for a specific condition, as this medication can cause various adverse side effects in dogs, like stomach ulcers, liver and kidney problems.

The liquid form will be absorbed into the system faster, and it is not advisable to use unless your vet has specifically prescribed it for a certain condition.
