Aspirin reduces pain and fevers and also has an anti-inflammatory effects that reduces swelling. These effects will help make your dog more comfortable. Note that a dog is not a human. Just because your dog "does not feel good" is not a reason to give it an aspirin. Usually, aspirin is given to relieve extreme conditions of discomfort.
