Aspirin


Aspirin, a common name for acetylsalicylic acid or ASA, is a type of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent used as an analgesic, antipyretic, and anti-inflammatory agent. Giving aspirin to poultry may be effective in some cases of acute and chronic gout, or to prevent clot formation and embolisms secondary to egg-related peritonitis, granulomatous diseases, and shock.

Caution. Don’t administer aspirin in chickens concurrently receiving tetracycline, insulin, allopurinol or other NSAID drugs. Aspirin should be used cautiously with enhanced monitoring in patients with severe hepatic failure or diminished renal function.

Storage/Stability:: Aspirin tablets should be stored in tight, moisture resistant containers. Do not use products past the expiration date or if a strong vinegar-like odor is noted emitting from the bottle.
