      Hi Dr. Karen,

      I believe it's a 5 mg dose 2 or 3X times per week - I'll have the specifics after I receive the aspirin from the compound pharmacy. Does weight determine the dosage? Chloe weighs less than 7 pounds at this point. At her healthiest she was about 7.5 pounds.

      Suzanne and Chloe
