My dog is getting older and he's been having more bad days than good lately. Since it got cold he is having a hard time getting up and walking (he's 130lbs). I started him on aspirin how long should I give it to help? I don't know if I should take him to be put out of his misery. I don't want to be selfish keeping him when he's in so much pain.

I would talk to the vet, with our dog we noticed each time we her a baby asprin. She is 10 years old, 130 pounds and has bad hips. She doesn't do to bad most days but has issues sometimes

 My parent's dog is on like a glucosamine chondriton thing for dogs, that might help but, I would ask your vet.

I would take him to a vet as well and maybe even to another to get a second opinion

Aww hugs to you,
Tough call .. you could try the aspirin for a week but also take him to the vet & get his thoughts too.
You don't want him in pain or to be hurting :(

Give him a high dose Fish Oil capsule every day. You WILL see a big difference. Also, ask if they will prescribe Tramadol for pain or Duramax for inflamation. If these work, great. If not.......

That's exactly what I was going to suggest! Buy the human kind though... My vet said it's way better than the supplements made for pets.
