I am sorry to hear your dog is not feeling well.
This does indeed sound like a urinary tract infection.
She will need antibiotics to treat any infection. She will need to have her urine checked to ensure there is an infection. She could have another problem present: urinary stones, bladder deformity, etc., so a good exam is key here.
Tramadol is absorbed very poorly in dogs and generally does not work well with them. However, if that is all you have (vs rimadyl, metacam, or gabapentin) I would use it. how much does she weigh?
Rimadyl is perfect. Typically it comes in 25, 75, and 100mg chewable tablets. Check to make sure what size you have. She can get 12.5 mg twice daily or 25mg once daily. That will help with her comfort.
You are very welcome. This should make her feel comfortable.
I wish you both the best. Have a great rest of your day!
