Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. It sounds like she is on good pain medication, so with issues like this, I usually recommend putting a cold compress on the area. It will help to slow down blood flow, which usually slows down pain, swelling and inflammation. You can do this for about 5-10 minutes a few times tonight. If your vet didn't prescribe and anti-inflammatory with the tramadol, that may help as well. Your vet should be able to prescribe some if they haven't already. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
