Excel Aspirin 2 2
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:Thank you for your question. Yes, this product is designed for dogs weighing over 15lbs.
Let me be clearer anout this: How is the pet aspirin different from aspirin for people? Is the coating different; is the aspirin different? Is the quality different? how? what?
Answer:its not different. A dogs physiology cannot "handle" it well. I have personally witnessed in my professional career animals die from bleeding ulcers.
Answer:Thank you for your question. The coating and milligrams are different for dogs and humans.
Is this the same as 81mg coated aspirin for people?
Answer:Thank you for your question. No, this is designed for animal consumption.
Answer:rimadyl is the safest and most effective treatment. Call your vet for the proper dose. I am a vet nurse but not legally allowed to dose your pet, even though I am capable.
Answer:Thank you for your question. Please consult with your vet before changing any medication.
