My old dog was given a prescription for Tramadol for pain, the dosage is a 50 mg pill once or twice a day.
A friend of mine also has a prescription for Tramadol, also 50 mg pills and his dose is 1 pill every 4 to 6 hours.
Now this is a 200 pound man and my dog is 50 pounds... So is the dog's dosage too much? Seems like a human dosage would be more than for a 50 pound dog?
I am thinking I will cut the dog's pills in half as I do not want to give her too much. It just seemed odd to me that the dosage was the same.
Any thoughts or feedback? Anyone else used Tramadol on their dogs?
