Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

I am very sorry, but I would implore you not to use Aspirin with your pup. While we do use it in dogs on occasion, this is a medication that can also thin the blood and therefore a risk so soon post surgery .Therefore, it would be much safer to ring her vet or your local ER for dog safe pain relief and not risk more harm then good.

Just in case you need a local emergency vet, you can check @ http://www.vetlocator.com/ or via

Please take care,

Dr. B.
