Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? How long ago did he eat the Tramadol? Has he ever had Tramadol before?

15 minutes ago. he had tramadol before but i don't remember the dose.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Alleyne, Dog Veterinarian replied 10 months ago

Okay thanks for the additional information. Based on his weight it seems like he got the higher end of the dose recommended for tramadol in dogs. So unless he has an unusuall sensitivity to the drug he should be fine. You may notice some sedation at worst if anything but you may likely not notice anything significant.

Was the Tramadol a pill form?
