Gabapentin (Generic) Capsules for Cats and Dogs

What is Gabapentin?

 Gabapentin may be useful as an adjunctive anticonvulsant for the treatment of seizures in dogs and cats or in treating chronic neuropathic pain in small animals. Do not stop the use of gabapentin abruptly without consulting your pet's veterinarian. Rapid discontinuation may lead to withdrawal-precipitated seizures if using the product for seizure treatment.

Gabapentin should be used with caution in animals that have renal insufficiency. Dosage adjustments may be required. Speak with your veterinarian regarding any dosage adjustments. Use extreme caution with use of an oral solution (Neurontin®) in dogs because it contains 300mg/mL of xylitol. Xylitol can cause low blood sugar or liver damage in dogs at higher doses.  

Possible Side effects of gabapentin:

 

  • sedation and drowsiness
  • ataxia
  • dizziness
  • peripheral edema

 

Report excess sedation or uncoordinated muscle movements to your pet's veterinarian.


If you miss giving your pet the dose, give it as soon as you remember. If it is close to the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue on your normal schedule. Do not double up on doses.

  • Q:

    For chronic pain use (cancer). if the dosage of 300mg per day is not enough, can I give 1/2 capsule12 hours later (to bump her up) or should dosages always be equal? I give her 300mg in the morning at 8am and 150mg at 8pm.

    1 answer

    • A:

      Gabapentin is a medication that is typically dosed based on the weight of the pet and indication for use. We recommend contacting your veterinarian for specific advice regarding adjustments to prescribed doses because this may increase the risk of adverse effects and require additional monitoring.

  • Q:

    Any reported appitite loss when using gabapentin for control of chronic pain in dogs?
    Asked on 3/11/2014 by rverfulltime from Park City, UT, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Appetite loss is not a reported adverse effect with gabapentin in dogs based on our available veterinary drug references. Contact your dog's veterinarian for further guidance in determining the cause of the appetite loss. It is important to note that gabapentin should not be abruptly discontinued but instead weaned off as directed by your dog's veterinarian.

    • A:

      Brenda,

      Oral corticosteroids as well as gabapentin would need to be prescribed by the veterinarian.  Your veterinarian would be the best one to determine proper course of treatment.

  • Q:

    is this good for my cat
    Asked on 10/23/2013 by brenda

    1 answer

    • A:

      Brenda,

      Gabapentin is a medication that is prescribed for the unlabeled use of treating neuropathic pain in both humans and animals. This may be a treatment option if the pain your cat is experiencing is nerve related. The supplement Cosequin, used to maintain joint function, may require additional time to see benefit. We recommend contacting your veterinarian if the pain doesn't appear to be joint related or appears to be getting worse.

      Thank you,

Comments about Camber Gabapentin:

My pup was on 400mgof this a day,but we could only get 300mg and 100mg...sadly he would end up with only 300mg as giving him the second pill was not always easy. THEN we would end up needing to give three of the 100mg as the larger ran out. Having the 400mg size is such a blessing. Now he receives the correct dose every time

Excellent Nerve Pain & Arthritis Medicine

By 

from Ohio

Verified Buyer

Comments about Camber Gabapentin:

My 10 year old dog has taken this for a year now in varying doses (200 mg to 900 mg per day), as his bulging discs were treated. Currently he is on 400 mg per day given AM and PM. Gabapentin has kept him sound and happy along with chiropractic and laser acupuncture treatments, Chinese cervical herbs. The main side effect is supposed to be drowsiness but I have not noticed this.

On the higher doses, he drank more water and gained a few pounds, despite his food and exercise being the same. The weight gain decreased when we reduced the dose of Gabapentin as his disc issues improved. From my reading and talks with a couple veterinarians, weight gain is not one of the known or documented side effects in dogs, but it is one of the possible side effects in people that use it.

Recently a friend's dog had a severe blood cancer along with her arthritis, and the Specialty Hospital prescribed Gabapentin for the pain. The vets there said they have been prescribing Gabapentin not only for nerve pain, but for for arthritis and general pain with great success. They like it there are no long term effects on animals or people, and no bad side effect unlike the other pain meds out there like Rimadyl that can cause various health issues.
