Really helps with my dog's arthritis.
My pup is 14 and she sleeps a lot but loves her morning walk. Before I started giving her Gabapentin she could barely make it up and down the stairs.

Shihtzu owner
Just started using Gabapentin for my Shihtzu after a largely invasive Endoscopic procedure. Our vet told us we could open the capsules & dissolve them in broth in order to get the desired dosage. Her dose at 1.4mg/lb is 22.4mg. I put a 100mg cap in 8cc of broth; so she takes 1.8cc per day. I’m sure there are easier formulas, but I just used ratio’s. Hope that helps. She seems to be doing better with the Gabapentin; not crying as much & able to rest.

Use sparingly
I was prescribed this for my 12 year old dog to help with pain - one tablet doesn't affect him and two make him pretty loopy (vet approved up to 2 every 12 hours). I only use it at night so he can sleep easier, but would not recommend during the day when your pet is more active.

My senior lab is now pain free
My vet prescribed this 4 months ago for my 8 year old arthritic lab who could barely walk. Steady improvement on walking and climbing steps again. My fur baby is more like his old self, playing and getting up and down stairs. Dramatic improvement. He did nap a lot at first, but now he's alert and active enjoying his senior years. I'm thankful for this medicine.

What is Gabapentin?

Gabapentin is a medication for the treatment of seizures. It is also used to help with chronic pain. Although Gabapentin is not FDA-approved for use in veterinary medicine, it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to prescribe this medication for dogs. Gabapentin requires a prescription from your veterinarian, and is sold per capsule.

For:

Dogs

Benefits:

  • Treats seizures
  • Helps manage chronic pain often associated with cancer or arthritis

How does Gabapentin work?

Gabapentin stabilizes electrical activity in the brain which prevents seizures caused by excessive electrical activity. Gabapentin mimics the activity of GABA (a neurotransmitter) which helps to calm the nerve activity in the brain.

Cautions:

Unless the benefits outweigh the risk, do not use Gabapentin in pregnant or nursing pets.

Brand Name:

Neurontin

Generic Name:

Gabapentin

What is the most important information I should know about Gabapentin?

Gabapentin is a prescription medication not FDA approved for veterinary use; however, it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to use this medication in dogs. Gabapentin is available as 100 mg, 300 mg, and 400 mg capsules. The usual dose to treat seizures in dogs is 4.5 to 13.5 mg per lb every 8 to 12 hours. As an aid in chronic pain treatment or cancer pain in dogs, the usual dose is 1.4 mg per lb once a day.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Gabapentin to my pet?

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has kidney disease. The dose of Gabapentin may need to be adjusted. Unless the benefit outweighs the risks do not use Gabapentin in pregnant or nursing pets.

How should Gabapentin 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. Do not give antacids within 2 hours of giving Gabapentin. Antacids can affect Gabapentin blood levels. Drug interactions may occur when giving any narcotics such as hydrocodone or morphine. Do not suddenly stop the use of Gabapentin. Store Gabapentin at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children.

What are the potential side effects of Gabapentin?

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Gabapentin 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 may include drowsiness, loss of balance, swelling of the limbs, and vomiting or diarrhea. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Gabapentin?

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 my pet on Gabapentin?

Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of Gabapentin overdose include reduced activity, excessive sleepiness, loss of balance, and depression.

What should I avoid while giving Gabapentin to my pet?

Gabapentin should not be used in pets allergic to it. Do not use in pregnant or nursing pets. Use with caution in pets with kidney disease. Do not give antacids within 2 hours of giving Gabapentin. Consult your veterinarian before giving any narcotic such as hydrocodone or morphine since drug interactions can occur.
