Ruben had an ACL/meniscus repair done last Wednesday (five days ago). He's on Vetprofen (twice a day, don't know the dose) and 50mg of Tramadol three times a day. Yesterday evening he started panting and circling on the rug.
He weighs about 17 lbs. I began to worry that the Tramadol might be causing side effects, so I cut his dose back by half. Is this a normal postoperative dose, and could it cause these kinds of side effects? I don't want him to be in pain, but am concerned that it might be too much medicine for him.
