GABA for dogs?

Link to this post 02 Mar 07

Hello,

My Shih-Tzu recently underwent surgery for a perianal hernia. The surgeon gave him a pain reliever patch because he'd had a bad reaction to Rimadyl a few years ago. That wasn't quite enough, so today the doc prescribed another pain pill to be given orally.

My dog is still at time uncomfortable. He hyperventilates and moans. I'm wondering if GABA would help him and, if so, what the proper dosage would be?

Thanks.

Bill

No, it probably will not. Pick up Rescue Remedy in your local health food store and give ~3 drops orally as often as needed. Please contact your vet in the am if pain persists.
