Customer Question
My 16 pound mini...

My 16 pound mini dachshund just ate 100 mg of tramadol. I was putting it in cheese for my saint Bernard, accidently dripped it and my mini dachshund ate it. Is he going to be okay?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

Duke and he's 10

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Duke?

No he's perfectly healthy

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
About 20 minutes ago. He's acting fine, but I just wanted to make sure he was going to be okay
Dog Veterinarian: Dr B, Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

How old is he and is he healthy?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
he's healthy and he's 10
Dog Veterinarian: Dr B, Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

ok, in all likelihood he is going to be fine because he did not ingest a toxic dose......but he will get sleepy....watch for odd behaviors like pacing, circling and anything different other than his normal....you will see mild sedation though...
