Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol vs rimadyl for dogs


Avatar f tn She seemed to be more mobile when taking the Rimadyl. Not sure if switching her back to the Rimadyl would be better for her or whether her symptoms are more disease related and a change in meds won't change things. The vet has advised to keep her on Prednisone.
Avatar n tn Tramadol is opiate based but considered safe for dogs. My pit was on rimadyl for a year or so, then we switched to metacam which the vet said was a little stronger, then after about 2 years we added the tramadol. Just last week we upped the tramadol as dogs can develop a tolerance just like humans. I have to say, the tramadol has made a huge difference in her continued mobility.
Avatar f tn Numerous warnings not to give Tramadol to dogs with kidney disease. WTF! How is this any better for her than the Rimadyl she was on? (also not recommended for dogs with kidney issues). I've asked for a referral to Blue Pearl, but have to wait for my vet to send them my info and have BP call me to set an appointment. At this moment, until I can get her to the 2nd opinion appointment that hasn't even been made yet, I feel like I have to decide between treating her kidneys or treating her pain.
514916 tn?1224521687 I'm so sorry to hear about what your dog and you have had to endure. I've heard of it. Our Siberian husky has to take Benadryl (an antihistimine?) as a preventive to side-effects before and after her vaccinations and the vaccinations have to be split up so she can tolerate them. Last year she developed diarrhea from her vaccinations. Dogs usually have an allergic reaction within 20 minutes after the shot. Has your dog ever had an allergic reaction to vaccinations before?
