Useful Website - Managing Pain & Canine Arthritis

We love our dogs and don’t like to see them in pain. But like us they can suffer pain from an injury, disease or arthritis which is especially common in older dogs.

In some cases aspirin can be used as an effective to control pain and reduce swelling in your dog’s joints.

As with any medication, there is a certain amount of risk involved is using it. And there can be side effects as well. Be sure you are aware and comfortable before giving your dog aspirin or any medication.

Prior to giving your dog aspirin, it is advisable to see your vet and have blood work done on your dog. This will help determine your dog’s overall health and whether aspirin is a suitable option for pain relief.

Keep in mind this is meant to be a short term pain management therapy and should be used under your vet’s ongoing supervision.
