Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question.

How long ago did Molly eat it?

Do you have any hydrogen peroxide in the house?

Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.

Obviously, the amount of Gabapentin that the little dog got is much too much for a dog her size, so we need to do something to get the medication out of her system.

The safest thing to do is to induce vomiting in your pup. Details on how to make that happen can be found here:

If you're unable to get the dog to vomit, then you should have him seen by a vet so that they can get the Gabapentin out of the system.

I hope this helps.
