I have to ask if anyone has ever had this experience before.....
I take Ultram- have been taking it for practically ever.... Im one of the few people that think that it works quite well a lot of the time for certain kinds of pain.... Of course Ive posted my probs on the WELCOME forum and Ultram is just PART of a med schedule I am on to control chronic pain from spinal probs.. ANYWAY---
I have an old dachshund who has arthritis and he limps and stuff when he first wakes up... I took the old guy to the vet today and after he looked him over, he handed me a bottle of meds to give him.. Half of a pill in the morning and half at night.... ITs TRAMADOL! It is 100% the same tramadol that is in my bottle, same thing exactly- right down to the numbers on the pills. A doggy on tramadol??
Ive read HORRRRROR stories about tramadol addictions and running out and w/drawls from it. I feel horrible giving that to my dog, (funny I dont feel horrible taking it myself but i wouldnt give it to my dog, huh?).... BUT still. I just had to ask if anyones ever had a dog who was prescribed tramadol before?
AND, also wondered if all dog meds are just HUMAN meds prescribed in smaller doses?
