Will Baby Aspirin Help my Dog's Arthritis?


Will Baby Aspirin help my dog's arthritis?

Right. Okay. So, no way man. As your vet, I'd say no. There are many, many better medications out there. Aspirin's actually quite an old medication, and therefore it comes with it quite a lot of side effects. So I don't tend to use aspirin really at all anymore. And we know that it can cause bleeding problems. So I wouldn't really want to use that. There are many, many other medications that your vet can help you with.
