My vet has recommended that if Ootay shows signs of stiffness and pain I should give her 1/4 baby aspirin every three to four days.
I told her I'd always believed that aspirin is poison to cats, but the vet prefers I do this instead of trying the metacam or any other potentially harmful nonsteroidal.
The cosequin has been working fine but today she is very stiff and seeming in pain. I decided to try the aspirin, but then I see the box I bought said "childrens" aspirin not "baby asprin". Is there a difference? Is baby aspirin an even lower dose?
Has anyone else used aspirin for their cats?
