Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. You can try Benadryl (2mg/lb) tonight to help settle him down some. It is very safe to give with the Tramadol. If that doesn't help, you might have to take him to the ER vet for an injection and a prescription strength sedative, but the Benadryl would be worth a try in this case. Let me know if you have any other questions.If you have a moment to fill out a positive review (by clicking on the **stars** at the top of the page) for me I would greatly appreciate it. This is the only way the website can credit me for my time. Thank you so much and good luck!
