    What is Excel Enteric Coated Aspirin?

    Excel Enteric Coated Aspirin provides temporary pain relief, making this an ideal medication for dogs with arthritis and related joint problems. This aspirin also helps to reduce inflammation and joint stiffness. Excel Enteric Coated Aspirin is not for use in cats.
    For: Dogs
     
    Benefits:
    Coated aspirin helps to protect your dog's stomach
    Helps alleviate pain, inflammation and stiffness.
    Ideal for joint and pain issues

    How it works:
    The active ingredient (Aspirin) works by attaching to the cylooxygenase-2 enzymes in your dog's body. This process prevents prostaglandin from being produced and is also what signals your dog's brain that a certain part of the body is in pain.

    Cautions:
    This product contains an NSAID, which may cause severe stomach bleeding. The chance is higher if your dog has had stomach ulcers or bleeding problems, or takes a blood thinning (anticoagulant) or steroid drug. If your dog is pregnant or nursing, seek advice of a veterinarian before using.

    Pain Free... My pooch hurt his front leg and was limping around... I gave him a dose of this and he was like a puppy again! he wasn't limping anymore and he was running around like nothing ever happened! 03/29/2012
    worked My pit was moving slowly and my vet wanted him to go on prescription meds at close to $100 a month so I got a second opinion. The second vet gave me joint supplements and these aspirin. That was 2 years ago, and although he has slowed a bit, it was much better than the alternative. These are small pills, easy to hide in a piece of cheese, I was getting the same coated aspirin at the vet, only at 3 times the price for a qty 90 bottle. 12/21/2011

    According to my vet, a dogs' stomach acid can't break down enteric coating, so they can't absorb enteric coated aspirin. The medicine is just passed through the intestines into the stool. She also told me dog aspirin should be BUFFERED not coated, uet this mentions no buffer at all.

    Can someone explain to me exactly HOW this coating is different and what kind of buffering it contains?

    Answer: 
    its not different. A dogs physiology cannot "handle" it well. I have personally witnessed in my professional career animals die from bleeding ulcers.
