This morning whilst my labrador was chasing his ball on wet grass he slid and let out a loud scream, he tried to get up and just sat there when he did get up his leg went underneath him like broke, I went to get a neighbour and by the time we got to him he got up and walked gingerly and was ok on all four legs, during the evening he tries to settle and panting well, he has been on lead walks and is still walking ok but just looks sorry for himself, he is drinking and eating just snacks
It was his left hind leg, he has just had a walk and walking slowly ok, has been panting all night
What dosage of aspirin can I give him. He has had a walk this morning, walking ok but just won't settle and whining a little but not constantly
Thank you. His panting is a sign of pain. His walking OK suggests that his hind leg is intact but that he likely strained his groin when he slid on the wet grass. As mentioned above, the dose of aspirin is 20mg/kg with food every 12 hours. It's best not to dose aspirin for more than 5 consecutive days in order to avoid gastrointestinal distress. Thank you for your kind accept. I appreciate it. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
