Aspirin with Blood Pressure Meds

An_247982 posted:
I have an 8year old Shepherd mix who suffers from arthritis and high blood pressure. He is currently on Fortekor and Amlidopine for his BP and no treatment for arthritis. The vet will not allow him to have Medicam for the arthritis due to interactions with the BP meds. I have read that baby aspirin helps arthritis pain. As baby aspirin is also NSAID would it interact with the BP meds as well? At what point does the potential risk outweigh the reward?
