Customer Question
Every evening after my...

Every evening after my 11 year old dog eats, she then whimpers and whines and we don't know why. I associate it more with evening than eating.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?

B'Elanna.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about B'Elanna?

She has been on Gabapentin twice a day since late June because she has random anxiety attacks that seem to have no reason. This has lessoned her anxiety attacks. The whining was never part of her anxiety attacks.

I am very sorry to see that none of our other Experts have reached out to you before now. I just came online and found that your question had not been addressed. How is your companion at this time?

I'm rather confused. I was told I would be charged 4.99 to start, but I have been billed another 14.00 for an answer I still don't have and did not approve. First of all, are you a Veterinarian or a Veterinary Nurse? You are listed as two different things. B'Elanna still whines after dinner and I am beginning to think she is hungry. You would think if hunger were a side affect of the medication, she would be whining all day, after breakfast, and after dinner, but she only whines after dinner.

Let me contact customer service for you. I don't have any access to billing info and they'll be the ones who can answer your questions on that front.
