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:

How does Gabapentin work?
