Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
I am sorry to hear you are worried about your Dachshund. My name is***** am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
An extra dose of the bromide should not do much harm.
If she is eating, and not straining to defecate, I am not worried about constipation. Dogs that are constipated usually are straining to defecate, and not eating much.
I see she has a history of back problems. Shivering and pacing are signs of pain. Since she is eating, it would be safe to give her some pain medication and see if it helps. Do you have any pain medication that has previously been prescribed for her?Can you take her temperature?
I am glad to hear that pain medication helped. I suspect she is having pain, possibly back pain. I would continue the tramadol for a few days and consider getting anti inflammatory medication as well. I am not sure if this is behavioral like Sundowners; I would first rule out a physical problem.
How is she doing today?Can I answer anything else? Let me know if I was helpful, and if you have any more questions. Rebecca
