Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
My name is***** and I am so sorry to hear that Beau is having so much pain tonight. You did the right thing to give him Rimadyl, tramadol and gabapentin, but you may be able to give him more.
How much does he weigh? How much of each medication did you give and at what time? (I'm in Mountain time, so maybe how many hours ago would be easier)
Please let me know the answers to these questions so that I can help you tonight,
Okay, thanks for the added information. It sounds like he is really struggling.
I would recommend giving him tramadol 100mg once every 6 hours and gabapentin (up to 600mg) can go every 8 hours. This will hopefully get him through the weekend.
You can also give 30mg of Pepcid twice daily, and this may help settle his stomach down a bit to improve his comfort.
No more rimadyl, sorry. This can upset his stomach more and induce more vomiting.
I would try a bit more tramadol and gabapentin before considering transport. Getting in the car can be so hard for these very aged dogs.
How was your night? How is Beau this morning? Did the extra pain pills control his pain?
