Hello there,

A 65 pound dog could have 325 mg buffered aspirin every 12-24 hours as needed. it must be given with food or stomach upset can occur. Ascriptin is best if you can find it. It is aspirin coated with Maalox to protect the stomach.

You are very welcome. Make sure you give it with food and tell your vet the dog has been given it.
