Yes, aspiring dosed at 10 mg/lb with food at 12 hour intervals is safe. Acetminophen is OK at 7 mg/lb thrice daily but isn't antiinflammatory as is aspirin. You must avoid both ibuprofen and naproxen - both of which are toxic to dogs.

I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow me to speak to customers by phone in this venue. Please stay in this conversation if you wish.
