Resolved Question:

Hi.
I have an ederly dog with ccd. Recently been put on seglian 15mg per day ( selegiline ). He has also hurt his back and yesterday given a course of tramadol 1 x 50mg 2 x a day.
Are these safe together for dogs as the paperwork for selegiline states not to be taken with tramadol.
Many thanks

Hello,

Thanks for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

Expert:  Rebecca replied 8 months ago.

It has not been specifically tested in dogs, but in people these should not be given together, so it is probably best not to give them together in dogs. Since both drugs can affect the metabolism of serotonin, both together could cause the levels of serotonin to be too high. You could see nausea, vomiting, or possibly cardiovascular collapse. Again, this data is from people, but concerning enough to recommend not giving these together. A single day or so of getting both would probably do no harm; these things would probably happen over time.

Let me know if this answers your question and if I can help with anything else.
