Customer Question
I gave my 23...

I gave my 23 pound beagle a half an asprin it's the safety coated enteric will she be ok?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the beagle?

She was limping and I gave her half an asprin for the pain about half an hour ago, i'm worried whether if that is ok for to have?

Veterinarian's Assistant: Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

I did and I think what happened is she pulled muscle when she tried to jump on the bed, she's been fine all day until she did that

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the beagle?

No she's completely healthy other then that, i'm just concerned if I should have given her the asprin or not?
