In this VETgirl online veterinary blog, we interview Dr. Jessica Quimby, DVM, PhD, DACVIM on the use of gabapentin in cats. With it’s growing popularity due to the Fear Free movement and opioid crisis, veterinary professionals are using it more in cats. What dose should we use, and can we use this daily in cats? What about in cats with chronic kidney failure? In this podcast, we discuss if transdermal gabapentin can be safely used in cats, and how to administer dose this capsule.

  1. I used Gabapentin to treat pain in a cat that had extremely severe stomatitis and it made her eat. I could barely believe it.
    When we had her teeth removed her gums would barely even hold a suture. It was terrible.
    Unfortunately her stomatitis returned after surgery but Gabapentin really helped to manage it.
    Just wanted to share that with you.
