Tramadol For Dogs

Tramadol for Dogs – What You Need to Know

Treating Your Dog’s Pain…

If a dog truly is man’s best friend, no person would want to see their pal in pain. And just like there are various medications for people, there is no shortage of pharmaceutical products for canines, either. But wouldn’t it be great if there was an all-natural alternative to relieve your pup’s pain, rather than medicating him or her with side effect-heavy drugs that just mask the ailments rather than heal them?


First, let’s take a closer look at one of those pharmaceutical drugs often used to treat pain in dogs. It’s called Tramadol and is delivered by veterinarian prescription. Tramadol is effective when used to treat mild or moderate pain, but may be combined with other opioids if pain becomes more severe.

What Is Tramadol?

Tramadol is administered on a one milligram per pound dosage rate. The heavier the dog, the higher the dosage, and can go higher depending on the animal’s level of pain. That dose is then taken by mouth every eight to 12 hours. Dogs may also develop a tolerance to tramadol over time, meaning regular dosages may become ineffective and additional – not replacement – medications may be used to treat the dog’s pain.

What’s disheartening about the drug, however, is that it may take several weeks before positive effects are felt, and what’s worse is that the manufactured drug has side effects including sedation, agitation, anxiety, tremors, constipation, decreased heart rate, and upset stomach. Tramadol is also not recommended for dogs who are pregnant or nursing.

Essentially, in order to fix your pooch’s pain, he or she may be faced with myriad other ailments that may wipe away any progress made by the drug. Additionally, Tramadol acts on the brain to change how pain is felt in the user, and doesn’t actually relieve or heal the issues where they occur in the body.

Can I Use Something Safer?

So how do we treat our dogs’ pain without giving them more issues? Let’s take a look at FlexPet, an all-natural joint pain relief supplement that can be used for both cats and dogs. The chewable tablets are designed to nourish the joints, support stronger cartilage, stimulate the lubricating fluid in the joints, and increase mobility as well as reduce pain and inflammation.

Here’s where FlexPet separates itself from the pack: it is an all-natural supplement, so there are no side effects – which means no sedation or stomach aches for your healing pet; and we are so confident in results, FlexPet comes with a 90-day money back guarantee.

There’s also no prescription needed for FlexPet, unlike Tramadol, which is a Prescription IV drug. While used to ease some arthritis issues, Tramadol is often prescribed to treat anxiety, canine degenerative myelopathy, and coughing, showing the drug’s use as a general treatment medication, unlike FlexPet, which is used to aim directly at the inflammation and arthritis issues found in pets.

Prescribed drugs and medications typically have a 20% effectiveness rate and only serve to cover up pain, while FlexPet is 80% effective and gets to the root of the problem. That’s thanks to FlexPet’s patented ingredient, CM8, also known as cetyl myristoleate, which is natural and lubricates and reduces swelling in the joints.

Quite simply, FlexPet means no more prescriptions, no more side effects, and no more pet pain.

  1. My Westin is 10 years old and has trouble with back legs. I
    Think she has some arthritis and her left leg slips out of joint frequently. Please let me know if your product could help her

    1. Flexpet can absolutely be of help. Now, what Flexpet will do is work as an anti-inflammatory, pain reliever, and lubricate the joints. If the leg is slipping out of joint, that is not something that Flexpet will necessarily help with. However, if it is an issue with arthritis, that is something that a significant number of our customers use our product for and have been very happy with the results.

      Please let us know if we can help you any further!

  2. my lab is 14 she now is given cosequin DS can I give her flex pet as well ? she has arthritis not hip displeasure She also gets Vetprofin 50mg twice a day AM & PM also a thyroid med am & pm She eats and drinks well I do not have her walk up or down stairs she finds it difficult getting up

    1. Of course, you should always consult your vet before changing/adding any supplements or drugs to your dogs regimen. With that said, Flexcin is an all natural supplement and should have no adverse affects with any other drugs. We also have never had a report of anyone experiencing problem with their dog taking Flexpet and Cosequin DS.

      Please let us know if you have any other questions!

    1. Hi Kathleen. Let us know if there’s something more specific that you need. Flexpet is specifically for joint pain in dogs and cats. This specifically happens most often as dogs age (especially with arthritis), but there are certainly other factors as well. Based on what you said, it sounds like Flexpet may be helpful (and there’s a money back guarantee if it’s not), but if you have more questions we are happy to answer them!

    1. A vet will have to give a proper dosage for Tramadol based on weight and current health factors. For Flexpet, typical dosage is 2-4 tablets per day, based on your dog’s weight. A dog under 25 pounds usually takes 1-2 capsules per day, while a dog over 75 pounds would typically use 3-4 tablets/day (potentially more in the case of very large dogs).

  3. My border collie is 13 and 75lbs. I give her meloxicam once a day for arthritis. But recently she moans and groans at night when moving. I would need 3-4 tablets or possibly more of Flexpet twice a day? That’s roughly 120 per month. How many capsules in a bottle? When you offer 3 bottles for a 3 month supply, is it really enough for 3 months in my case?

    1. Thanks Rick. There are 90 capsules in a bottle, which is typically enough for a 3 months supply. Some small dogs only need 1-2, some large dogs may need as many as 4-5. 75lbs is typically right about 3/day, so you should be fine, though for the first week or two, you may want to “load up” with 4 per day, as it will be new to the system. We would suggest the 3 month supply, knowing that if you feel it doesn’t work, you can return the empty bottles for a full refund of the purchase price.

      Please let us know if you have any more questions!

  4. My 17 pound Sebastian has kidney failure. He’s on a balanced homemade diet to help with his problem among other things.
    My question is, he also has a collasped treachea and is taking theopholine 50 mg. for his treachea. He has artheritis in his front right heel and a bad back.. his Vet has him on Meloxicam for pain which I’m not fond of but it helps. I’m looking to replace the meloxicam and use a safer alternative.
    My question is, can I use Flexpet with the Theophyline.. thank you .. Kat

    1. Hi Kat. We always suggest talking to you vet before making any dietary or medicinal changes. With that said, Flexpet is an all natural supplement, and therefore should not interfere with any medication. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us at 1-800-505-0575.

  5. I have a 10 year old cocker spaniel that has Cushings and a non working thyroid. She takes medication for the thyroid and Vetoril for her Cushings. She has started to have some difficulty getting up and is walking a little bit stiff legged. The vet prescribed Tramadol for her, but she doesn’t seem to be in any pain, and I’m reluctant to go down that road with her. She has a sensitive stomach already, and knowing her luck, she will get all of the possible side effects of the tramadol. Will Flexpet, help her without causing side effects or interfering with the Vetoril? She has the breathing issues that come with Cushings, so that is another reason that the tramadol is worrisome. Thanks for your help.

    1. Hi Susan. That just sounds tough – so sorry you guys are going through all of that.

      As far as Flexpet is concerned, it sounds like it should help (and we have a 90 day guarantee – if it doesn’t, we’ll refund you). Because Flexpet is all-natural, there’s nothing there that’s going to interfere with other medications, so you’re good there. If you’re dog has a sensitive stomach, you can just keep an eye out to see if anything changes. Again, there are no known side effects, so you should be good to go. As a supplement, it’s kind of like adding something new to the diet. If you changed dog foods, even to a top brand, you’d still watch to see if there were any changes just in case there was something natural that the dog was sensitive to. Other than that, you should be all set. We’ve actually had a lot of customers that were originally taking Tramadol and switched over. Just make sure to consult your vet regarding weaning off of Tramadol.

  6. I have a GSD service dog who is having issues with knee arthritis and a CL. I would like to try Flexpet, but she is very, very fussy about what she swallows. She is on tramadol and she lets me put these at the back of her throat, but if Flexpet supplements are very large, I’m dubious that I could get her to swallow them. If I put them in her food, she would refuse to eat them — and the food. An option would be if they can be broken into smaller pieces without crumbling.
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Danielle. It does have a “break” in the middle so you can split in in half with your hands. However for very small or picky dogs, we typically advise to crush and mix with food. If that doesn’t work for your dog, but you think you can break it up into smaller pieces and give it to her her like you do the Tramadol, that should be fine. If you want to try, and your dog ultimately won’t eat it, you can just send us back the empty bottles and we’ll refund you the purchase price. Let us know if we can be of any further help.

  7. I have a 13 year old border collie who has kidney failure and now also painful joints on moving and laying down and getting up. I live in UK and as he can’t have an anti-inflammatory my vet has recommended tramadol. I am not very happy about this and was looking for an alternative when I found Flexpet on the web. Can I buy this in the UK and would be alright with his kidney problems?

    1. Hi Liz. The short answer is, yes and yes! While we don’t have any distributors in the UK, you can buy from Amazon or our website (we will ship to the UK – just be aware that sometimes Customs can slightly delay shipments, though it doesn’t happen often). Also, since Flexpet is all-natural, it should have no negative interactions with other medications or the kidney issue.

      Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help!
