Customer Question
Pup just had booster...

Pup just had booster, we gave benedryl before but he's so sore and crying every time he moves. Can I give him doggie aspirin, or I have tramadol (broke his leg a few weeks ago). He weighs 3 lbs

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name and age?

Yes, as for over the counter analgesia, caretakers are constrained to aspirin dosed at 10 mg per pound of body weight with food at 12 hour intervals or acetaminophen which can be dosed at 7 mg per pound of body weight thrice daily but isn’t antiinflammatory as is aspirin. You can give aspirin and acetaminophen concurrently which should provide better analgesia than either drug alone. When giving acetaminophen for longer than 5 consecutive days it's best to reduce the dose to 5 mg per pound of body weight twice daily. You must avoid the toxic ibuprofen and naproxen in dogs. Tramadol would seem to be overkill but it can be given concurrently with those analgesics above. Dosing is 2-5 mg/lb repeated at 8 hour intervals if need be. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Not sure if you are suggesting both or just one, and if one which one for now
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 1 month ago

Aspirin alone should suffice. If you didn't see a positive change, adding acetaminophen should be helpful. If you didn't have aspirin at home, acetaminophen alone will suffice. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
