Tramadol makes me a little happy, so I don't see why it wouldn't do the same for Huff. Glad to hear he is feeling better.
In the human world it is similar to codeine, and is used for chronic pain relief as well as acute, such as trauma or surgery.
If it's only been a few days and he is just now feeling better, I see no harm in decreasing his dose to see if you can keep him comfortable, thereby weaning him, but I would think he's still healing and tender. However, I am a big fan of pain meds when needed for myself and my patients, so I say let him wag his little tail and be happy!!
