Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 9 years of experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you.

How much does he weigh? Do you have access to Tramadol (a human drug) from something your human doctor may have prescribed? What did they diagnose him with- a fracture, or just soft tissue and muscle trauma?

He is about 1 1/2 st. They x-rayed down to his paw but didn't do his paw as the skin was scrapped off to the bone in some places so they bandaged it and said get appointment today. I may be able to get tramadol as I think mother in law prescribed it.

Okay. What is 1 and 1/2 st? I only understand lbs or kgs. (I am in the US.) Is he on antibiotics at all?
