What is Methocarbamol?

Methocarbamol is a prescription muscle relaxant used in dogs and cats to treat muscle spasms. Methocarbamol requires a prescription from your veterinarian.
Methocarbamol
For: Dogs, Cats, and Horses
 
Benefits:
Relaxes muscles and reduces muscle tremors caused from various diseases, traumas, or ingesting toxic substances
Helps to treat muscle spasms caused from intervertebral disk disease ("slipped disk") in dogs
Also treats permethrin poisoning in cats, which can occur when permethrin from dog flea medication is ingested

How it works:
Methocarbamol is a muscle relaxant that acts on the central nervous system to relax the muscles.

Cautions:
Give methocarbamol exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Do not give it in larger doses or give for longer than recommended by your veterinarian.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving methocarbamol to my pet:
Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.
 
How should this medication be given:
Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Store methocarbamol at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets.
 
What happens if I miss giving a dose:
Give the missed dose as soon as you remember during the same day. However, if you don't remember until the next day, skip the dose you missed and give only the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose of the medication.
 
What happens if I overdose the pet:

What are the possible side effects of Methocarbamol:
Methocarbamol may cause drowsiness. The medication may cause a darkening of the urine. For dogs and cats, if any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving methocarbamol and seek emergency veterinary medical attention: an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing, swelling of the lips, tongue or face; hives). Side effects that can occur in dogs and cats may include weakness, stumbling, incoordination, drooling, and vomiting. Methocarbamaol may discolor the urine. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.
 
What other drugs will affect Methocarbamol:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given any other medications such as antihistamines (chlorpheniramine), gabapentin, metoclopramide, opioid narcotics, tranquilizers (acepromazine), or any other medication that may cause drowsiness. Drugs other than those listed may also interact with methocarbamol. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any prescription or over the counter medicines including vitamins, and supplements.
 
Where can I get more information:
Your pharmacist has additional information about Methocarbamol written for health professionals that you may read.

Call your veterinarian for medical advice about any side effects to your pet. You may report side effects to the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

Answer: 
You should see results right away. Methocarbamol is a muscle relaxant that should help relieve muscle spasms after each dose. It may also have a more cumulative effect that will be seen after giving it for a longer period of time.

Answer: 
Methocarbamol is a generic drug made by many manufacturers. Tablet size, shape, color, markings, etc vary by company. The medication in the vial should match the description on the outside label. PetMeds carries only the 500mg strength of Methocarbamol.
