Has any heard of tramueel?
Hi, my dog also had cancer & had the same prescription. There isn't a liquid form of tramadol, but there are other forms of liquid pain relief & injections (such as metacam, rimadyl, vetergesic) Also you can get palatable analgesics (such as rimadyl) which are very similar to dog treats, smell, taste the same. What type of cancer does your dog have? If the suggestions above are unsuitable, you can get a timed release form of tramadol, so you would only need give it once a day, & the veterinary nurse can go over techniques with you & your dog for pill giving.
May I ask what type of cancer dose your dog have, how old is he/she etc??? I am just wondering if they can't remove it or stop it's growth, I know it's a hard thing to deal with, but have your considered euthansia(sp) for your poor pup? We had to have our of 13 years put down, but she is still with us on the mantle in her urn & will always be in our heart. We just couldn't stand to see her suffer anymore. She never complained, but the pain issues were there for sure. Just a thought...
Yes, Tramadol comes in ampules, tablets, capsules, powder for reconstitution, and oral syrups and liquids. You will need to mix with food as the taste is distasteful to dogs. If your vet is unwilling to find and order the liquid form you can try giving the pill in a Greenies Pill Pockets Allergy Formula. Hopefully this should make it more enjoyable for your dog to take its pain medication. Good luck.
