We have a 11 year Irish Setter mix. We know she is slowing down and we notice she's having a harder time getting on the couch to lay down and she favors her left back hip when she walks. Is there anything we can give her to help and comfort her? We have given her baby aspirins when it is really bothering her, is this ok or could you recommend something??
Baby aspirin is probably not going to do much for a large breed dog like an Irish Setter. You may want to consider asking your vet about anti-inflammatory medication for dogs. There are many on the market and they work well. You should also look into joint products with glucosamine for dogs mostly sold otc. Vetcare
