I am sorry to hear you are worried about Noah. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

If he is taking prednisone, it is not safe to give aspirin. You can only give one or the other. How much prednisone does he take, and why?

There are safe pain medications that can be given with prednisone, but they are by prescription from your veterinarian: tramadol, or gabapentin.
