I was talking to a women at the track where i walk Diesel. She said that she gives her dogs aspirin. Will aspirin hurt that dog to give it every once In a while. What would be the dosage it is a larger dog. It is a very sweet dog I dont want it hurt. If it isnt I may give it to my dogs if they need it
If we ban Pit Bulls and Rottweilers are humans some dont like next ?
It depends on why you're giving it to them. We give my Sheltie half and asprin(he's a very large sheltie at 40 lbs) when he over exerts himself and starts limping because of the pin in his leg but I don't think you should give it willy nilly because your dog looks like he has a headache or something lol
i don't think it will hurt your large dog... my grandma had a border collie cross that took aspirin whenever it needed to, ate human food, and drank cough medicine when it needed it. The dog lived to be 21 years old.
I give my dog baby chewable aspirin once in awhile. I suggest not giving it on a regular basis since aspirin thins the blood. If a dog should happen to have an injury, internal or external, it may complicate matters with excessive bleeding.
When ever you give your dog an analgesic, even as one as simple as aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) you should always check with a vet first. Many conditions can be made worse by aspirin, especially bleeding. Aspirin makes the platelets slippery, so that they don't stick together and clot as well. I still think it's one of the best pain killers going. Acetaminophen, or Tylenol, should never be given to a dog or a cat unless ordered by a vet.
