I am sorry to hear this has happened.

I will need a little more information to better help you.

How long ago did this happen?

What size aspirin did your puppy eat?

How much does your dog weigh?

It happened about 5 minutes ago he is very little 5 to 8 pounds mabey and a regular aspirin not a I'm thinking 500 mi
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. G., Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

I see. This can definitely be a big problem for a dog his size. I would induce vomiting. You can do that yourself with over the counter 3% hydrogen peroxide, or you can head to a vet to get an injection of apomorphine to make him vomit. If you go the route of peroxide, give 1 teaspoon orally and wait 10 minutes. If there is no vomiting in 10 minutes, give another. If there is still no vomiting after 20 minutes, I would head to the vet to induce vomiting.
