Hello and welcome. The original expert you asked for is not online. My name is ***** ***** I have been working with dogs for 25 years. You can give plain aspirin and give this with food. Do not give ibuprofen or Tylenol products. Also let your vet know that you have given aspirin as other pain meds may have to wait until the aspirin leaves the body. Here is information on dosing and side effects http://www.petplace.com/article/drug-library/library/over-the-counter/acetylsalicylic-acid-aspirin
