I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner, Gina. Yes, either aspirin dosed at 10 mg/lb with food twice daily or acetaminophen (Tylenol) dosed at 7 mg/lb thice daily are OK. You must avoid the toxic ibuprofen and naproxen. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Hi Gina,

I'm just following up on our conversation about Bella. How is everything going?
