Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Perhaps not beneficial for my senior Lab My senior Lab-X was prescribed Gabapentin 300 mg. 1cap. Every 12 hrs for arthritis hip pain. I stopped giving her this Med. BC of diarrhea & listlessness.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Caution when using We had this as a new script for our dog. He became listless and had GI upset all the time. After 3 days being off this med he is back to usual self. Was not good for our dog and by what I understand GI upset is common with this med.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safe Pain Medication My dog takes this as part of her arthritis treatment. Between this and a couple of supplements, she is doing much better. Even though she still is sore and stiff sometimes, she's walking better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonder Drug, Frustrating Dosage Gabapentin does wonders for both dogs and humans, hands down. The problem is, the smallest available dose is 100mg capsules, and a 15 lb dog, according to two different vets, should have a daily dose of 75mg, spread throughout the day. You can't cut capsules. The price of compounding recently shot through the roof. I wish they would have a pet-sized dose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Without Gabapentin, my little girl could not sleep at night. There was a problem when ordering, but 188PETMEDS fixed everything & expedited the shipment without an additional charge. I am totally happy with this company and recommend to all my pet friends!
