Methocarbamol is commonly given in conjunction with a steroid when addressing myelopathy (spinal cord disorder) in dogs. The dose I recommend initially is 60 mg/lb divided into 2-3 doses over a 24 hour period and then 30-60 mg/lb divided over the next days; if no response is seen in 5 days, it should be discontinued. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
