What do you give your dogs for pain relief? Can I get it over the counter, or should I talk to my vet first?

Dogs are most commonly given aspirin for treatment of arthritis and associated joint pain. There may be other situations where your dog is in pain, where aspirin may give relief. Aspirin has good anti-inflammatory effects that reduce swelling. It can also reduce pain and fever.. Check with our vet for dosage and frequency
