My 8 yr old boxer had a golf ball sized lump removed from…

Customer Question
Hi, my 8 yr old...
Hi, my 8 yr old boxer had a golf ball sized lump removed from his forelegs this afternoon. He is periodically whimperING and whining (not a common for him to make these). I feel like he has significant discomfort at the incision site. Could I give him 325mg Bayer Aspirin, coated tablet. Just o e tonight and perhaps one tomorrow mid morning. He is 100 lbs, good results on bloodwork, and has eaten 1/3 cup of kibble a a few sips of water with no problems.
Thank you!

Hello. My name is***** will be happy to help you. I may need to ask you a few questions to better assess your situation.
Did your vet send him out with any medication or give him any injections after surgery?
If so, can you please tell me which medications they sent home, or what injections where given (should be on your invoice)?

He did not send him home with meds. He had an injection of Rimsdyl at the vet. No ther instructions

Sorry about the wait. I had logged off around 10:30 CST. How is Tater doing this morning? With the Rimadyl injection on board, the aspirin wouldn't be a good idea. Mixing 2 non-steroidal anti-inflammatories together has a much higher chance of side effects, especially GI ulcers. If still painful, applying a cold compress to stop inflammation and swelling is usually a safer choice. If your vet is open, I would talk to them about getting more pain medications to go home. If not open yet, I would use the cold compress until they are. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.

Thanks,
