Hello,
I guess I am a bit nervous as to why you are asking to give aspirin.
A few things:
1. If your pet has any history of liver or kidney problems, don't give it all. Please contact an ER vet for assistance.
2. If your pet is on prednisone (steroid) or any other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory like Rimadyl, Deramaxx, Metecam, Zubrin, Previcox...DO NOT give aspirin.

3. Do not give ibuprofen or tylenol

Here is a link about aspirin that contains the dosing guidelines for aspirin.
Hope that helps
Good Luck
