Hi, I'm Dr. Peter. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.
1- How many milligrams total of Tramadol and Prednisone are you giving and how often?
How many milligrams just 50 and 5?
To make sure I got this right, he is taking 100mg of Tramadol and 10mg of Prednisone twice a day, correct?
Thank you for the clarification. Please give me 5 minutes to type your answer.
Pat, in response to your question, yes, you can apply gently warm compresses 5 minutes on his neck 3-4 times a day; this will help if he has a pulled muscle. I would also phone your vet and discuss with your vet about increasing the both medications to 100mg Tramadol and 10mg Prednisone twice a day. Currently, the dose that he is on is very conservative. I think you will see a quicker improvement with these medications if they increase the dose.
