      Aspirin is safe to give in the range of 1/2 of an 81
      mg. to a whole 81 mg. every 72 hours. Because it is
      easier to remember twice a week some people give
      aspirin on the same two days weekly.

      Recently a vet on another group mentioned seeing a
      paper about the experimental use of 5 mg. aspirin
      daily. This would require a special formulation as
      this is 1/18 of a 81 mg. aspirin. Owners of cats who
      are extremely high risk of thromboembolism may want to
      ask their cardiologists/internists about this as the
      vet who mentioned it did not remember what the
      efficacy was.

      You may want to look at VetGoCardiology Concepts as it
      is meant for veterinary students and is very detailed
      and up to date:


      I got 14 results for gallop.
