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. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- How much does she weigh?

2- To make sure I got this right, the last dose she got was 1/2 tablet at noon, correct?

Friend, in response to your question you can increase the tramadol to 50mg every 8 hours. Discuss with your vet about adding an anti inflammatory medication if she is having back problems.

Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
