My springer spaniel seems to have injured his hip on a walk

Customer Question

My springer spaniel seems to have injured his hip on a walk today with a dog walker. Can I give him a people aspirin. We are leaving him tomorrow with a house sitter for three weeks.

Hello and thank you for using this site to help you. The original expert you asked for in not online. To answer your question yes you may give an aspirin and I will direct you to a site that goes over dosing. Do not give any tylenol products or ibuprofen products. Just give the aspirin with food. This should only be used a few days tops .
