Dose for aspirin is 325 mg per 10#..baby Aspirin is 81 mg, so would be a pretty large dose or about 4 baby aspirin per 10#. What are you trying to address?

I noticed the other day that my 3 month old Boer goat was limping and not putting weight on his front left leg. he has a swollen knee. took him to the vet and we don't think it's broke but the swelling is getting worse. His whole leg is becoming swollen and I'm at a lost as to what it is or what to do. I don't have any banamine so i've been giving him baby aspirin and icing it.

Hows his temp? Perhaps he twisted it? How does the knee feel? Hot, firm, squishy, watery? Navil ill comes to mind but at 3 months old its less likely. Joint ill can happen after an illness.
Baby aspirin is ok for a few days, Its hard on the liver so would give it too long. Does it seem to help?
