Hello Theresa. My name is ***** ***** I have been a veterinary nurse for 26 years. I would be happy to help.
If she is not on any medications then aspirin can be used short term ( no more then three days). This is dosed at 5mgs per pound of body weight every 12 hours. This can cause some stomach upset so be sure to give with food.
If she has any vomiting or loss of appetite then discontinue the use of aspirin.
If she is on other medications please let me know what so I can make sure there will be no problems using the aspirin.
I hope this helps and she feels better soon.Please reply back if you have additional questions and I will be happy to continue.

If you have no additional questions please take the time to provide a rating to close out the question. Closing the question does not mean that you can not come back for follow up as the question is always open to you. It simply closes it on my end so I can assist other pet owners.
