Description

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.

Key Benefits

  • Medication for the treatment pain, especially chronic pain
  • Gabapentin can also be used to treat seizures
  • Available in two prescription strengths in tablet or capsule form

How It Works

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.

Directions

Weight Dosage
all weights

For seizures: 4.5 mg-13.5 mg per pound every 8-12 hours.

For pain: 1.4 mg per pound once a day.

Cautions:

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

Precautions:

Because gabapentin is almost completely eliminated from the body by the urinary tract and kidneys, it should be administered with caution in animals with kidney disease.
