Subject: [ferrethealth] Re: Tramadol

I was just given Tramadol for Odie to keep onhand in case of pain. The vet quartered it and told me to dissolve 1/4 tablet in 1cc water, then give 0.4 cc bid. I didn't realize till I left that I didn't notice what the strength of the tablet was. Odie did take it the first night - before I decided he isn't hurting - and lapped it up in his food.
