Using Aspirin in Dogs and Cats - The Bayer Generic | PetCareRx

What if the circumstances are different? What if you didn’t give aspirin or ibuprofen to your dog, but have come home to find your bottle of Motrin or Advil open on the floor? How do you spot of these NSAIDs? Since the primary ill-effects dogs suffer from these medications are related to digestion and filtration, the symptoms of poisoning are reliably related to those systems. Things to look out for if you suspect your dog has gotten hold of human pain meds include vomiting. If the dog has enough aspirin or ibuprofen in its system, that vomit may contain blood, as may the dog’s feces, which may express itself as bloody diarrhea.

I'd seen posted randomly on the web that aspirin is a no-no for dogs but hearing that it's worked well for others is encouraging.

Most standard Aspirin tablets are 320mg and baby Aspirin is 80mg. Depending which tablets you have on hand, you may need to give your dog part of a tablet or several. Just make sure that you do not exceed two doses in a 24-hour period – that is, one dose every 12 hours. You should also keep in mind that anything over 30mg per pound is considered toxic, so make your calculations carefully. Proper dosage is important for all dogs, but especially for small dogs because even a minor miscalculation could lead to an overdose.

Cats are much more sensitive to aspirin poisoning than dogs. Signs of aspirin poisoning in dogs or cats include gastrointestinal signs (e.g., vomiting, diarrhea, vomiting of blood, black-tarry stool, stomach ulcers, etc.), hyperthermia, respiratory changes, bone marrow suppression, kidney failure, and central nervous system signs (e.g., collapse, extreme weakness, tremors, seizures, cerebral edema). Aggressive treatment is necessary with toxic amounts, and includes decontamination, gastrointestinal protectants, symptomatic and supportive care, IV fluids, and blood work monitoring.
