Which is better to give for arthritis. The Rimadyl or regular aspirin or the doggie aspirin? How destructive are these on their stomach's? Some say you shouldn't give them much of any of these because it encourages them to play more which aggravates the condition more. I don't want to switch one pain for another by giving them an aspirin product only to have it tear up their stomach. Will moderate doses hurt them.
You are thinking too much. If your pet is in pain from arthritis it would be cruel not to want to relieve the pain with anti-inflammatory medication. I usually use rimadyl for arthritis but aspirin in good to use if your pet has a mild case of arthritis. I also recommend Cosequin to help slow down the progession of arthritis. Good luck, vetcare
