Arthritis medicine for dogs.

Species: Dog
Breed: fox terrier mix
Age: 11-15 years
Zoey recently has been having trouble walking. I think it may be her hips? She does better in warm weather, outside.. When she is back in the airconditioning, she struggles. Is aspirin a good choice for arthritis. Are there other choices than aspirin for her?

Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:
