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

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. One pill is given per 15lbs of body weight and since your furry pal is 115lbs, it would be 8 pills for the proper dosage.

My Mastiff has a torn shoulder muscle that the first Vet told us was cancer and suggested we put him down. The second prescribed Rimadyl for him for the swelling and pain. Just wondering if this might help as well as Rimadyl has. Without it being so pricey. I love my dog to pieces, but I've got to feed my kids too.

Answer: 
It will not be as strong as the Rimadyl. We do offer the generic version of rimadyl. Please call us
to go over price options. I would suggest calling the vet who prescribed the Rimadyl....you are
entitled to have them review all options of medication treatment in regard to what you can afford.
You can certainly try the aspirin but ask your vet the upper limit in dose they would recommend
under the circumstances.
