Q. Can I give my 6 yr old male Shih Tzu dog baby aspirine, or what for a mild to moderate tempature? Diagnosed with an eye infection and drops given.

A. No don't give any human medications as they can cause serious problems. Once the infection starts to improve hopefully the temperature will regulate too. If not it maybe that something else is going on so a recheck is advisable and possibly some different treatment.
