Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner and I regret that I can't correspond with you outside of this venue. Can you please give me a history of Biscuit's behavior which has resulted in the diagnosis of dogzhemiers? If, indeed, cognitive dysfunction exists we also have to consider brain tumor at Biscuit's age. Such lengthy vocalizing is usually addressed with a benzodiazepine such as alprazolam (Xanax) with variable effect rather than gabapentin which is useful as adjunct therapy when addressing seizures or chronic pain.
