Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with interest in Canine Health. You can give the aspirin like the Vet mention every 12 hours. In the mean time if you can determine where the pain is, I suggest a rice sock. It is a tube sock with uncooked rice, and warmed in the microwave. Shake it out to distribute the heat and apply to the painful area. This will help with the pain until you can give the aspirin again. I d suggest you have Lylie into the Vet as soon as reasonably possible and keep her on strict rest.
I would give it with a little something to eat if you give it now just so the stomach is not empty. It should be ok. We worry about upset stomach and gastrointestinal distress from aspirin, thus waiting the 12 hours. If you have Pepcid ac in the house you can give a quarter of a table to protect the stomach. If I have addressed your concerns, please take a moment to rate my service 5 stars.
I want to check in on Kylie. and see how she is doing. Did the aspirin seem to help the pain? Please let me know. I like to follow up and be sure my information helped.
