it was prescribed to him for after a surgery, as pain relief. 2 tablets three x a day for 3 days. I guess what i'm asking is does this seem like a good idea. I wanted a second opinion.
Hi, basque! Tramadol is one of the most commonly (If not the most common) analgesic we prescribe for our canine patients because of it's efficacy, safety, and because it's so well tolerated. The dosage varies widely from 0.45mg to 1.8mg per pound given orally every 8 to 12 hours so your baby's dose is very appropriate for his weight. It could be increased if needed but you would need to consult with his veterinarian.
Best wishes to you both, WildcatVet
