Veterinarian prescribed 100mg of tramadol to my 95 lb boxer

Customer Question

Veterinarian prescribed 100mg of tramadol to my 95 lb boxer Roxie. She takes 2 50mg tabs twice a day for pain. I accidentally gave one 60mg tab to my other boxer Ivy. Ivy is 67lbs. She took it approximately 30 mins ago. I'm watching her and waiting for a call back from her Vet. She is doing ok so far.

Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am not set up to make a live call. But, I am happy to answer your question on this thread.

Friend, 50 or 60 mg of Tramadol will not be toxic for a 67 lbs Ivy, this dose is slightly below therapeutic recommendations for her weight. No need to worry, no symptoms expected she will be fine.
