Very interesting, I sent it to my hubby who takes it. I have noticed his memory is not what it used to be.

Interesting.

I have heard that even thought still popular as a pain medicine for dogs, more and more veterinarians are moving away from it. Apparently not as effective as pain management for dogs as first thought.

On a personal note, Tramadol was prescribed to me when I broke my ankle and it made me sick sick

Extremely interesting. I wake up with the headache from hell and can only curl up in my chair for the day when it wears off. I wonder if it's dropping my sugar level and causing the headache since I do get migraines when my sugar fluctuates.

And I avoid giving it to my dogs because of the headache I get.

Wonder if it would affect dogs the same way? Keeta is on Tamadol, having a hard time finding a painkiller that works for her.

Would be interesting to know if it does.

Etta was spayed and had some dental work done at the beginning of November and she got sick, probably from the anesthesia, but as a precaution my vet also said to stop giving her the Tramadol since that could also bring on a reaction.

Jazz appears to do well on tramadol, which is good, since I don't think her gut would tolerate nsaids, but I definitely keep a close watch and luckily I don't have to use it regularly right now, just in spurts.

Not sure Buddy would be here without tramadol. He is still on a relatively low dose for his size, but it has been increased twice over 6 months.

So far, it seems to be only helping him.
