Hi there,
Thank you for your question regarding your Shit zsu girl who has been prescribed Tramadol. Before I put an answer together for you, I just need to know how much your girl weighs please? Tramadol can be given every 8 - 12 hours, but the dosage would change depending on your girl's weight.
Once you get back to me, I will start typing up my response. Thanks for this and I look forward to hearing from you shortly.
