Hi FDMB members: I haven't been here for a couple of years since my diabetic Oreo had passed. But I couldn't think of a better source for getting advise for my other cat, Debbie. She has a degenerative back and arthritis. (and what a coincidence, so do I!) Her vet gave her Gabapentin. We started with the lowest dose advised, which was .75 ml. twice a day. She was completely "stoned". So we dropped the dose by half, and same story. So we thought we can build up to an effectve dose. Today we started with .1 ml in the AM. She is still sleepy and sedated, though not as bad. Have you ever used Gabapentin with your arthritic kitties, and what do you know about it? I wondered if you can build up the dosage? If you have any advise, please let me know. Getting old isn't for sissy s , even in cats!
