NAME OF THE MOLECULE:
It is an anticonvulsant, that is to say, it prevents all kinds of convulsions regardless of the cause. It is also an analgesic for, among others, neuropathic pain.
It is used to control chronic pain and convulsions. This medication also prevents allodynia, which is a pain that is brought on by a stimulus that is generally painless, or hyperalgesia, which is an exaggerated response to a painful stimulus.
Do not use, unless advised by a veterinarian, if your pet suffers from a kidney or liver problem or is gestating.
This medication may cause a lack of coordination in the movements and have a tranquilizing effect. If your pet experiences drowsiness, a lack of coordination in his movements, serious adverse effects, that worsen or persist, contact your veterinarian immediately.
It is important to observe whether the condition of your pet improves and if he presents any side effects.
INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER MEDICATION:
Do not use gabapentin, unless advised by a veterinarian, if your pet is taking an antacid, hydrocodone or morphine.
Store at room temperature.
It is important to stop the medication progressively and not abruptly to avoid bringing on convulsions in your pet. Do not use gabapentin for humans sold under the commercial name Neurontin, because it contains a larger amount of the molecule xylitol which, after a certain threshold, is toxic to the liver and can lead to hypoglycemia in small animals. Respect the expiration date of the product because an expired product may be less effective or potentially dangerous for the health of your pet. *Keep out of the reach of children and animals.*
