Hi Terri! Our 15 lb. sheltie just accidentally swallowed a 100 mg neurontin. How can we induce vomiting? Is it necessary?

Hi, I'm a licensed veterinarian, and I'll be happy to help you today. Inducing vomiting will not be necessary after ingestion of this amount of Neurontin. While it can cause some drowsiness or lethargy, it would not be expected to cause any serious effects. I do not anticipate the need for veterinary attention.
