My 15 year old dog was given Gabapentin 50milligrams 12 hours

Customer Question

My 15 year old dog was given Gabapentin 50milligrams 12 hours apart. When I went to give him the first pill for today, he just started these yesterday, I dropped the bottle and quickly picked them up. Just now I took one for after he is fed and realized I was missing one. If he injested two this morning I certainly would not give any more but I'm want to make sure he is okay and should I take him to the emergency vet.. He ate all his food, we walked in the back yard and he has drank plenty of water. Will he be alright???
