This seems to help our elderly and arthritic beagle. We give it to him twice a day with his food. He will NOT chew it. He will only take it in a pill pocket with his other meds. The vet says it is harder on his stomach than a prescription, but he has shown no ill effects and it is much less expensive than tramadol or rimadyl without the drowsiness.
My 11-year-old, 10-pound rescue has weakened back legs or hips. Her back legs tended to collapse and she was in obvious pain. Not any more. This buffered aspirin product allows her to be her frisky self, pain-free. Her dose is 60 mg three times a day which is just below the 200 mg maximum suggested for her weight. I see that the pills are now scored, which makes it much easier to split. Thank you for that! Ronnie
