Tri Buffered Aspirin in most cases should be OK.

200mg ibuprofen? Work? And can u get that at walmart?
NO that is DEADLY to dogs!!

You can only give buffered aspirin and if you are not sure what kind to get go to petsmart they carry it over the counter. I just picked some up today for my dogs and it works good enough.
The only problem is you really should not give it to puppies younger than 6 months so your pup might not be old enough. Yes it is painful to have surgery and they should have given you meds for your pup. At that young do not get anything you can get a walmart go to a vets office if you get anything. If you overdose your pup your could shut down the kidney's and kill them.
