Welcome! My name isXXXXX am a UC Davis graduate, and currently, a Medical Director of a veterinary hospital.
I am sorry to hear about this concern for Shrimp.
Let's pretend we wanted him to eat it. A typical dose of Tramadol for a dog is about 10-20mg for a 10 pound dog.
So, 50mg is about a double dose. That is not exceedingly high to cause any toxicity.
I would still monitor for any gastrointestinal upset, but that would be no worse than giving peroxide, which is an irritant to the stomach
causing vomiting. It can also be a bit sedating.
So, no need to induce vomiting but close observation for any illness, excessive sedation, weakness/drunk like walking
would be advised.
Sorry to hear what happened. Please let me know if there is anything I did not cover for you. I hope that information has been helpful.
