Description

Owner’s perception of stress in their pet is a primary reason for avoiding veterinary care. Strategies to reduce stress and ease handling of fearful pets during veterinary visits have included behavioral conditioning, low stress handling, and anxiolytic medications.

Gabapentin is an inexpensive drug readily available for oral administration in liquid and capsule form. This drug is commonly used for its effect in reducing pain in our veterinary patients, and its anti-anxiety properties are well known in humans.

Objectives

Learn about gabapentin as an intervention in companion animals to help reduce the stress associated with transport to the veterinary visit and examination
Discussion includes the recommended dosage as well as potential adverse effects and considerations in administering this medication.
