Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet Tech for 35 years.

To Help your Dog is she is not on any meds or has any bleeding issues. You can give 5 mgs of plain aspirin per 10 pounds of body weight evey 12 hours/

I suggest you get some Musher;s Secret before allowing her to run in the woods. This will protect her feet. You can also get her some dog boots to protect the feet. I suggest if the are gothering her at home, you can put some baby socks on her around the house to protect them.

Please hit reply to discuss this information and questions.
