Yes, it's dosed at 2 -5 mg per pound of body weight up to thrice daily. In fact, the combination of tramadol, carprofen (Rimadyl), and methocarbamol (a skeletal muscle relaxant) is commonly prescribed when addressing degenerative disk disease in dogs. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
