I can tell you this, my vet said it is pretty much the same. My dog was prescribed this, so was I but vet said I could give my dog my tablets if we ran out of her tablets, so I suppose the opposite goes as well, yet, I would think that the cleanliness (at manufacturing plant) of any veterinary medication would NOT be the same as for humans, so I'd be pretty leery of taking my dog's tablets

Hi, when i was working, the surgery i was with dispensed the same Tramadol to pets as you would dispense for humans. I didn't actually realise there was a pet version? Obviously the dosage would be much different. My dog was prescribed it when he was in pain from a gastric carcinoma.

Just a word of caution... if you want to talk your pet's tramadol, then go for it, but PLEASE DO NOT give your pet Tramadol, or ANY OTHER MEDICATION that is prescribed to you without asking your pet's vet first of the medication and the dosage is ok for your pet! Just because the same drug is prescribed for both humans and pets does not mean that they can take the same dose and some medications can be toxic to your pet at certain doses!! Always contact your pet's vet!
