Ascriptin Use In Dogs

Comments Submitted Says:

My 15 year old dog has arthritis in his hind legs. He is about 50 pounds. Can I use a 325 mg. Ascriptin to treat him or should I use one or two 81mg coated aspirin? Suggestions will be helpful. Thanks.

First I will say that I am not a vet; however, I have a 45 pound dog that was crying out with severe lower back and leg pain last September. I took him to a vet and he prescribed the following. 3 each 50 mg Tramadol (a mild opiate) and 2 each 325 mg Ascriptin per day. The results have been miraculous for 9 months "and going". He only takes two of the Tramadol and one or two of the Ascriptin spaced out thoughout the day. No coated aspirin according to the vet. A dog can not breakdown the coating.

My vet has just recommended Ascriptin (Maalox-coated aspirin) for my dog's pain, but I cannot locate it. Is there a substitute?
