Thanks for asking about Nancy Lou. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

Yes, dogs can take aspirin. Some dogs can't; it makes them vomit, but if you give it with food and she does not vomit, you can give 20 mg of baby aspirin once to twice daily. If she vomits, do not repeat it.

Do not give Tylenol, or Advil, aspirin only.

Let me know if this is helpful and what else I can answer.
