|Okay, I think the tramadol started to make her a little constipated. She struggled to poo at about 3am this morning and it was hard.
I got her laxatone at petco and gave her some and she pooed again a little later.
My vet said there is another med we could try but he doesn't want to put us in the hole with money since we spent so much on her and we are trying to save for her teeth. She needs take tramadol for a month, he said laxatone is very mild and would be safe but he said miralax also works really well and we could try that. He also told me to try to lower the dose but he said she is already getting the lower-end of the dose and worries it may not work as well.
I read about miralax and it said it's good for short term use but would a month be to long?
Just don't know what to do, the tramadol has been working super well. She has been able to eat food without any problems and her mood as increased and been better even though she hates me for a little bit after I give it to her.
