It appears you have opened a new question or new account, so I don't know what we were discussing or if you accepted my first answer.

But, I am here.

Hi Dr Andy it's Annabelle asking about Needles. I have some tramadol that I had from when he had surgery. Can I give him some of that?


Tough question.
Tramadol is for pain, but with all that vomiting, I would not. You would really be better off giving the Cerenia and one of the antacids I suggested. At least giving those an hour or two before the Tramadol.

Good question Annabelle, but I think you really need to focus on settling the stomach.

Hope that extra info helps. Please remember to provide a feedback rating when finished. Thanks

Ok I will try that.

Sounds like a plan.
Good Luck Annabelle.

The Cerenia should calm the trembling also?

Don't know.
That's what I am hoping. But, give an antacid also!
Pepcid, Prilosec, Zantac, or the pepto bismol. One of those may also help!

I don't have any antacid at the moment and he won't eat anything for me to put the pill in Frownand he bites me if I try and put it down his throat. I will need to decide what to do next. Thanks for your help.

Hi Annabelle,
I have thrown out the best answers that I can.

If you can't give it, you can't give it. Not worth being bitten.

You are welcome. I'll hope for a speedy recovery.
