Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Did this pup suffer any injury?
2) Any history of joint pain?
3) When did you start the aspirin?
4) How much does he weigh?
5) How many milligrams are you giving?
6) Still eating, drinking, urinating and defecating normally?
