Hello!
I am sorry to hear about Ceasar.

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

A whole regualr strength aspirin would be too much, but you could give a low dose (81 milligram) aspirin once to twice daily. Give it with some food, and if he vomits, do not give it again. Do not give Aleve or Advil, only aspirin.

I hope he is back to normal soon. Please let me know what else I can help with or answer.

I have bayer 325 mg would a half or less of that be ok or do I need some baby asprin?

Expert:  Rebecca replied 1 year ago.
You could give 1/4 of a 325 milligram aspirin, once to twice daily.

How much dose he weigh? I am giving a dose for a 15 to 20 pound dog.
