What is Tramadol?

Tramadol is a pain reliever used to treat moderate to severe pain. Tramadol requires a prescription from your veterinarian, and is classified as a schedule IV controlled substance.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:
  • Relieves various causes of pain, including postsurgery pain
  • Used to treat chronic pain
  • Can be used with or as an alternative to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
How it Works:

Tramadol's exact mechanism of action is unknown, but it's similar to morphine. Like morphine, Tramadol binds to and blocks receptors in the brain (opioid receptors) that are important for transmitting the sensation of pain throughout the body.

Cautions:

Tell your veterinarian if you give any medicines to your pet, as there are some potential adverse interactions.

Brand Name:

Ultram

Generic Name:

Tramadol

What is the most important information I should know about tramadol:

Seizures have occurred in humans taking tramadol. You should not give your pet tramadol if the pet has a history of seizures. Give tramadol exactly as it was prescribed for your pet. For pain relief, the usual dose in dogs is 0.45-1.8mg per pound of pet's weight given by mouth every 8-12 hours. For treating chronic cancer pain in dogs, the usual dose is 0.45-1.8mg per pound of pet's weight given by mouth every 6 hours. The usual dose for cats for chronic pain is 1.8mg per pound of pet's weight given by mouth twice a day. Do not give in larger doses or for longer than recommended by your veterinarian. Seek emergency veterinary medical attention if you think you have given your pet too much of this medicine. A tramadol overdose can be fatal. Tramadol overdose symptoms may include drowsiness, shallow breathing, slow heartbeat, extreme weakness, fainting, or coma. Do not stop giving tramadol suddenly. Symptoms of sudden withdrawal may include anxiety, nausea, diarrhea, tremors, chills, and breathing problems. Talk to your veterinarian about how to avoid withdrawal symptoms when stopping this medication.

What is tramadol:

Tramadol is a pain reliever. It is used in dogs and cats to treat moderate to severe pain. Tramadol may also be used for other purposes not listed in this guide.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving tramadol:

Do not give tramadol if you are giving your pet any of the following drugs; a narcotic pain medicine, sedatives or tranquilizers (such as Valium), or medicine for anxiety. Seizures have occurred in humans taking tramadol. Your pet's risk of seizure may be higher if your pet has any of these conditions; a history of epilepsy or other seizure disorder, a metabolic disorder, or if your pet is being given an antidepressant, muscle relaxer, or medicine for nausea and vomiting. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is allergic to any medications, or if your pet has kidney disease, liver disease, or a stomach disorder. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.

How should tramadol be given:

Give tramadol exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Do not give it in larger doses or for longer than recommended by your veterinarian. Allow plenty of water for your pet to drink. Tramadol can be given with or without food. Do not crush the tramadol tablet. Do not stop giving tramadol suddenly. Symptoms of sudden withdrawal may include anxiety, nausea, diarrhea, tremors, chills, and breathing problems. Talk to your veterinarian about how to avoid withdrawal symptoms when stopping this medication. Store tramadol at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

What happens if I miss giving a dose:

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and give the medicine at the next regularly scheduled time. Do not give extra medicine to make up the missed dose.

What happens if I overdose my pet:

Seek emergency veterinary medical attention if you think you have given your pet too much medicine. An overdose of tramadol can be fatal. Overdose symptoms may include drowsiness, shallow breathing, slow heartbeat, extreme weakness, fainting, or coma.

What should I avoid while giving tramadol:

Cold or allergy medicine, narcotic pain medicine, muscle relaxers, and medicine for seizures, or anxiety can add to drowsiness caused by tramadol. Tell your veterinarian if you give any of these medicines to your pet.

What are the possible side effects of tramadol:

Get emergency veterinary medical help if your pet develops these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat. Stop using tramadol and call your veterinarian at once if your pet has any of these serious side effects: seizure; a red, blistering, peeling skin rash; or shallow breathing. Less serious side effects may include: drowsiness, and weakness; vomiting, constipation, loss of appetite; blurred vision; insomnia.

What other drugs will affect tramadol:

Your pet may be more likely to have a seizure if you give tramadol while giving certain other medications. Tell your veterinarian if you are also giving your pet or using any of the following medications: an MAO inhibitor such as selegiline (Anipryl), Mitaban, or a Preventic Collar; an antidepressant such as amitriptyline, clomipramine (Clomicalm), fluoxetine (Prozac, Reconcile), or acepromazine. Also tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given warfarin (Coumadin); digoxin (Lanoxin); ketoconazole (Nizoral); or drugs that can cause drowsiness such as other pain medications, muscle relaxants, and herbal products. This list is not complete and there may be other medications that can interact with tramadol. Tell your veterinarian about all the prescription and over-the-counter medications you give your pet. This includes vitamins, minerals and herbal products.

Where can I get more information:

Your pharmacist can provide more information about tramadol.

Call your veterinarian for medical advice about any side effects to your pet. You may report side effects to the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I'd Known Sooner My 13.5 old Border Collie had begun slowing down. She was having difficulty getting up and was hesitant to negotiate door thresholds. She had been taking glucosamine supplements, but eventually I was helping her stand after she first woke up. She developed a fatty tumor on her hind leg which our Vet said to leave alone due to her age. It became so large it began to perforate the skin, at which point, it was surgically removed. She was given Dramadol to take following surgery, and as her daily medicine. The results were immediate! I can't describe what a new dog she has become. She is actually bounding into the livingroom room again, looking for her toys, which I had put away months earlier! I wish I had known about Dramadol earlier. My previous Vet had never recommended anything other than supplements. It ihas been wonderful for my sweet girl.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Affects all people and dogs different I take this medicine everyday for lupus, fibromyalgia and 15 past surgeries therefore I live in chronic pain. I choose this drug over anything because not only does it help my pain, after about 4-5 days all my side affects diminished. I prefer it over norco or other meds I have. My dog had it after a surgery and seemed a little off, confused, etc ... But he was in pain and you can't expect to take any med with no side effects. He is about 13 now and has good days and bad days and he's 50lb. I admit I only give him half the pill 25mg 2-3 xs a day and notice he wants to do more now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prolonged my beloved dog's life. Although I lost my sweet Spike last April, this medication helped his arthritic pain wonderfully, improved the quality of his life and helped him sleep peacefully. He was a wire-hair Doxie and I adored him. All of you pet lovers know how knowing our babies are not in pain is so important. A few months ago I adopted an 8 year old Doxie mix from the ASPCA in Orlando, Fl. He has helped mend my broken heart so much. My Vet says he has a little arthritis in his back legs and I would not hesitate to use this if the time comes he needs it. Thankfully he's ok now, very spunky, his name is Jake.

Do you have a online vet to perscribe medication

Asked by: Robert
Tramadol specifically you would not be able to get from an online veterinarian.
Answered by: Ben B
Date published: 2017-02-21

My vet said my 96 pound lab should get 150 mg every 8 hours for arthritis, 450 mg a day! That seems like that's a mega dose. If I took that much, I would have some serious somnolence. I assume that dogs metabolize the drug differently than humans?

Asked by: Dennisv
Dog and human metabolism are different; however do have similarities. Recommended dose for pets is 0.45-1.8mg per pound (1.8x96=172) every 8-12 hours. This medication will likely make give your dog somnolence that could subside overtime. If not you may want to talk to your vet about alternatives or decreasing the dose.

Dose for 60 lb dog

Asked by: Sharon
Hello Sharon, The recommended dose is weight based at 0.45-1.8mg per pound. The frequency depends on what it is for. For pain relief take it every 8-12 hours and for chronic cancer pain take it every 6 hours. In the case of a 60lb dog I would recommend starting with one tablet (50 mg) and see if your dog responds well to that. You can go all the way up to 2 tablets (100mg dose). Thanks for asking, Pharmacy Intern
