Q. Can you give a dachshund penicillin vk 500 milligrams and can you give them tramadol 50 milligram for pain? She has abscess anal gland 7 years old 16#

A. The abscess may need to be cleaned and flushed out before the antibiotics could really work. This should be done by a vet. That would be about the right dose of Tramadol for a 25-pound dog, given at least 8 hours apart, but legally no one on the internet can direct you to give your animal any prescription medications. I would recommend you see a vet for proper overall treatment. Waiting on something like an abscess can lead to a much bigger bill later if your dog ends up needing surgery.
