My dog is on tramadol due to pain in the back. Has not had a bowel movement since early on 12/30/13.
How is constipation treated in dogs who are on tramadol?

Hi, i've always used liquid paraffin. It is very safe. And also i agree with the statement about feeding wet, canned dog food to help move things along
Provided your dog is not diabetic, my vet told me to put a tablespoon of white Karo syrup in my cat's food twice a day, which means to split their food up and feed them twice a day. Don't leave food down for them. Karo syrup also works for babies if they are constipated.
Yes, I've given my old dog mineral oil. Of course, canned dog food gets them going too.
Your poor baby! Whatever you do, don't give your dog Pepto Bismol, as I've heard it can be dangerous for dogs.
If I were in your boots I'd call the Vet, oh no, they won't be open today! Give me a few minutes and I'll see if I can dig any info up about dogs and constipation caused by a synthetic opioid pain med.
