I am Dr. Noel Berger, it is my pleasure to serve you today. I am an active licensed veterinarian with over 33 years of clinical experience.
Your concerns about your pet's health are my top priority, and I can confidently help you both feel better.
My objective is to determine whether your pet needs to have a full physical exam, or if we can manage things from the comfort of your home.
Please be patient with me when I ask you a few questions regarding your pet's situation.
I cannot prescribe medication on this platform, but if you have medicine at home, I can discuss correct dosages with you.
I will do my best to help you and your pet, and give you my professional advice based on the history and clinical signs you share.


You can give aspirin at 5mg per pound of body weight.

You will need to mash it and mix it in something she will eat like Peanut Butter or Banana.

Would you say she weighs 2 pounds or so?


So 10mg is all she would need.

That is about 1/4 of a baby aspirin.

Only give it once, then see your vet first thing in the morning.




Can you post the Xrays here tomorrow?

One question I don't seem to find aspirin 5mg can I do Motrin for kids instead?
I'll try to bring her in to the vet tomorrow

No you should not use Motrin.

Baby aspirin is about 60mg each

If you break it into 4 pieces, each piece will be 15mg.

She just needs a little piece.

Okay that sounds good then!
Thank you
