Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi, I'm Dr. Peter. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply ASAP.
Hello, again, I will do my best to help you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
1- 300mg of what medication?
2- Is he currently on any medications?
3- Can you describe his symptoms?
Friend, Gabapentin is sometimes used to treat chronic pain in dogs. However, in this case, if he is on Tramadol prior to starting him on Gabapentin I would recommend you discuss with your veterinarian about starting him on an anti-inflammatory medication like Rimadyl (carprofen). Gabapentin is best for chronic pain management, not acute pain. I would phone your vet in the morning and request starting him on Rimadyl.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service. See you again soon!
