I'm sorry to hear of this with your dog. Both aspirin and cephalexin can cause gastrointestinal disturbances and when on board at the same time those disturbances are even more likely to arise. Both drugs need to be discontinued at this time. Her vet can prescribe a better tolerated antibiotic and analgesic. Please note that once a tumor ulcerates ("splits the skin") conservative (medical) treatment will fail. These tumors need to be removed surgically. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
