Default Aspirin dosage??

What is the aspirin dosage for a 6 lb chihuahua?

Besides aspirin, what else do any of you use for general pain management for dogs with LP?

Be very careful giving aspirin. Only give with a full stomach and even then, it could cause ulcers.

If my dog was having pain management issues, I'd work with my vet to find a prescription strength remedy. I wouldn't do over the counter pain meds.

I don't recommend aspirin for dogs as I've seen dogs get bleeding ulcers from just one dose. If your dog is in pain you need to take it to a Vet and get a 'doggie' pain medication for it, they are much safer and the dosage can be calculated properly. Adding Glucosmine/Chondroitin helps with LP.

Thanks for the advice ladies! I've never given aspirin to my chi before, but I wanted something on hand on days when she seems a bit stiff. I usually have torbutrol from the vet but I've run out - I typically don't like to give this to her though, as it makes her very very sleepy.

I do supplement with glucosamine/chondroitin, but I can't tell if it's working or not. I give her Zuke's Hip Action. I have Glyco-Flex soft chews as well, which is a far superior product as far I can tell, but she flat out REFUSES to eat them. Any tips?

I read somewhere before that Aspirin can be very harmful to the stomach lining in cats and dogs, I don't think I would give it.
