Customer Question
She had dental surgery...

She had dental surgery last Thursday and has been taking Tramadol every 8 hours for pain-tonight her head suddenly started twitching uncontrollably-lasted for several minutes-could the pain med cause this?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?

Her name is Hayley-she's a rescue so I'm not sure-we were told that she is seven years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Hayley-she?

Yes-she's also taking Clindamycin 300mg. every 12 hours
