JeanKBBMMMAAN Tramadol in humans often adds Tylenol and that is what most people will get.

A human product called “Ultracet®” is available. It contains acetaminophen in addition to tramadol. This product is NOT safe for cats at any dose and requires specific veterinary instruction if it is to be used in dogs. Never use your own medication on your pet.
Tramadol

When I took a history the story was all.over the place idk if she left something out in fear of getting in trouble or not. Her dog fell off the back of an extended cab truck. Seemed to be painful. She gave her some of her tramadol. I asked what mg the tramadol was she said 500 and her dog started getting tremors and pale skin color and she rushed her right over. Where by then time she got there the poor baby didn't stand a chance.

Halo - where is this information coming from? Are you a vet tech? You keep talking about ER and doctors?
I work at Animal Emergency & Referral Center of York Pa. I'm a LVT there.

Midnight12 So Tramadol does not belong on a list of poison pills for dogs. It is not.

Hospitals prescribe it. My ex has diabetes and when they had to leg surgery they sent him home with 500mg of tram. I know its the same pill. My point was she assumed to much for a dog that small.

stmcfred Anyone should know there is a difference between 500mg and 50mg.

In that way of thinking you could probably label anything as toxic because of the quantity. Like water. Too much water can cause water intoxication.

This lady assumed because they were the same pill she'd give her German Shepherd pup who was roughly 50 lbs on of her tramadol her prescription that was 500 mg. Overdosed her dog because it was way way into much for her size.

Its not toxic but assuming a 500mg tramadol is the same as a 50 mg tramadol is a huge difference that can be lethal. Like I said until I actually thought about it I didn't agree with the tramadol.either.
