Ask a Dog Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I am sorry to hear you are worried about your dog. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
What does he weigh? It is safe to use these drugs but I need his weight to give you a safe dosage. I would probably chose tramadol first. Paracetamol (in cocodamol) is safe for a few doses, but long term can cause liver disease.
Do you have any aspirin? Aspirin with tramadol (if he is eating and not vomiting) would be what I would use.
You can give 2 tramadol every 8 hours. If it makes him too drowsy, give 1 every 8 hours.
I think that would be safer than the cocodamol (paracetamol/codeine); codeine can have unpredictable effects in dogs. The rimadly with tramadol is a great combination when you can get the rimadyl.
Please let me know how he is doing and what other of your questions I can answer.
Yes, that would be safe.
Good you thought to ask, though!
You are welcome! Thanks for the great rating.
