    How long does an injection last? 8, 10,12 hrs? Vet gave my little guy an injection after his surgery today....wondering if I should give baby aspirin tonight for pain?

    Yep, every 12 hours. I gave it a few hours sooner once because I gave a low dose and the goats temp was climbing quick again.

    So do you think I could safely give him a baby aspirin tonight around 10:00pm?....just don't want him hurting over night.

    I would give more banamine. Aspirin is going to thin his blood which wouldn't be a good idea. Banamine also thins the blood a bit, but from what i've read it isn't as bad as aspirin.

    I may also be a bit biased since I'm allergic to aspirin and stay away from it. lol

    wow allergic to aspirin? Thats scarey!

    I would go with the banamine too- I think it will work quicker and hopefully better than the aspirin would

    Not an anaphlactic(sp) reaction, but it's not great. :sick:

    The banamine can also be dosed more accurately. :thumb:

    Yes Stacey....you would be correct....he gave him an injection at the office and then said to start with baby aspirin tomorrow, but I was just thinking if the banamine last for 12hrs then it would be worn off by tonight and then he might have pain during the night...... I went a head and gave him an aspirin tonight......I hope there will not be any problems.
