Hello, I'm Dr Gary. I've been practicing veterinary medicine since 2007. I look forward to helping with your questions/ concerns.

I assume you mean Tramadol. Yes you can give that. It's very safe in dogs. We typically give anywhere from 1-3 mg per lb body weight. It can be given up to every 6 hours.

I hope this helps get him more comfortable.
