Customer Question
Hello, Veterinarian's Assistant: Hello...

Hello,

Veterinarian's Assistant: Hello. How can I help?

I have a golden retriever, a big boy 95 pounds, who had a sarcoma removed from the dside of his foot today. He was perscribed tramedol 50mg for pain - 2 x a day. I gave hm a pill at 7:00 pm but he seems very uncomforatable and pacing. For the first night can he have an extra dose?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the Golden Retriever's name and age?

Hunter age 4

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

Just the surgery I mentioned above

I'm Dr. Sarah, a veterinarian with over 10 years experience and am here to help! Was he prescribed 1 pill twice a day?

I'm sorry to hear about his tumor. Tramadol has a huge dose range...about 4-10 mg/kg every 8 hours. The top of that range would be about 400mg (8 pills) per dose for him. I'm not suggesting you give that now, but just to let you know there room to go up. You can definitely give him 2-3 pills per dose now.
