Question

Ben Campbell, via facebook asked:

Has Aspirin been effective for animals with heart problems also? Like pets-dogs and cats?

Answer

We posed this question to Professor Peter Rothwell from the University of Oxford...

Peter - You can.  A lot of research has been done using Aspirin in animals and in fact, the first observations about prevention and treatment of cancer were in animal models.
