Hi. He has been on meds for a disk problem. Currently he is on gabapentin methocrbamol and tramadol

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?

I only have 1 tramadol and gabapentin

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the dog seem to hurt?

No muscle relaxer

Veterinarian's Assistant: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?

Can I give him a human Oxycodone

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is the dog eating normally?

Yes

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No appetite problems. Is the dog having trouble peeing or pooing?

He is in some pain. My vet will see him Friday morning. Just wondering if I can give him 1/3 of an Oxycodone

those are all great medications used for osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disease in older dogs. Oxycodone is and can be an effective pain reliever for dogs however it is not something that is traditionally prescribed although can be given at a safe dose typically 0.3 mgs/kg. Unfortunately because I am unable to examine your pet and don't have a history as far as medical background or other health history, I cannot advise you to give this medication. What I would recommend is contacting your veterinarian and asking if they feel that it would be a safe medication to give him since you are currently out of medication and have to wait for his exam, especially because you're worried about chronic pain. They should be able to advise you as to whether or not it would be safe for him at his age and given his history since they know him.
