Hello I am sorry to hear that your boy has been injured. My name is ***** ***** I have been a veterinary nurse for 26 years. I would be happy to help.
You absolutely positively can NOT give these meds together. When aspirin is used we actually have to do a wash out where they are not on anything for 7 days before giving Rimadyl. Also neither of these drugs should be given more then twice per day.I apologize if I sounded harsh but I would hate to see you loose him after all your love and care due to medication complications.
I completely understand that you are only trying to help him but using these drugs together poses a very very serious risks of causing bleeding
ulcers, damage to the liver and or kidneys, and problems with the clotting factors in the blood.
The dose for Rimadyl is 1mg per pound of body weight every 12 hours. I would use this only since it is far more effective then aspirin.
I would highly suggest getting him on Pepcid AC to try to protect the stomach
. This is dosed at 1/4 of a 10mg tablet every 12 hours.
It sounds like you are doing a good job of caring for him but I have to suggest having him seen by a vet. Most injuries from a dog fight are internal and shaking very often causes damage to the spine.I am also very concerned about the head trauma.
I hope this helps and he does ok. Please reply back if you have additional questions and I will be happy to help.
