I am sorry to hear about Tess having arthritis. How much does she weigh?

Dogs can take aspirin, with food. Some dogs will vomit and can't take it.

They can take paracetamol but not for long periods of time; it can cause liver disease. A few days is usually considered to be safe.

If you tell me her weight, I can give you the dose.
