@Laco @Lucille Right on all counts, I was hoping that baby Aspirin would be available in liquid form, but not here north of the border. Still, if it's something that can be found in the states, my parents shop there often enough that they could pick some up.
@Dawnben Thanks for the tip, we will ask the vet about that.
@lzrddr The dog is quite healthy and fairly active, his age considered. I think that for this reason the vet wants to avoid the only ultimate fix (open heart surgery) and give him a daily preventative so that a plaque or a clot doesn't do his heart in. I'll ask, though.

They do still have liquid baby aspirin here in the states, you'll see it under name brands like Advil and Motrin, and some store brands like CVS or Walgreens. Again, if you get the liquid please read the ingredients and make sure it does not contain Xylitol.

WARNING: Advil and Motrin are NOT aspirin and extremely toxic to dogs. If your pet must take aspirin, be sure it is ASPIRIN and not another NSAID over the counter (Ibuprofen, which is what Advil and Motrin are) should never be given to dogs for any reason- seen way to many deaths from this drug. Alleve (Naprosyn) is also too toxic for dogs. Just stick with Aspirin. Even Tylenol (Acetaminophen) has toxicity in dogs (though a few doses will not hurt), and Tylenol is not an NSAID so there is no use for it in clot/plaque prevention.

Yes Aspirin comes in liquid forms, but there is no reason to think a dog will not vomit this form when it is vomiting another. It is not the form of the product, but the function/action of the product, and aspirin, be tablet or liquid, is still aspirin, and if one form is making your pet vomit, another form will just as well.

I have treated thousands of dogs with heart disease, and sent many to specialists... and still have not seen a one being prescribed aspirin. People with heart conditions take low dose aspirin to help prevent coronary artery disease, a form of heart disease dogs do NOT get (don't live long enough to develop this disease). So you might discuss the rationale again with your vet and see if your pet really needs this drug, which is upsetting his/her stomach.

Thanks for the advice, guys. We will give the liquid aspirin (ASA) a try, and make sure that it doesn't contain Xylitol. I trust my parents not to come home with acetamoniphen or ibuprofen or a different drug.

Whatever the purpose of Aspirin, we will definitely be happy if it helps his shortness of breath again. He's definitely too old to put through surgery, but he is quite active and enjoying his life (like, he still gets puppy zoomies) so we would not want to think about end-of-life stuff until he begins to become unhappy/uncomfortable on this planet.

ETA: Everything I'm reading says that heart murmurs are generally not treated, but can be the result of an overworked heart valve-- perhaps clots/plaques are suspected as the cause of this?

Thanks for the information. I had a vet I used to go to tell me to use the Ibuprofen for pain my dog was having due to luxating patella. Considering how he messed up diagnosing some other issues my dog was having I should have known to question his advice. I'm just grateful I haven't given my dog the Ibuprofen for over a year.
