Gabapentin used in appropriate doses can help take facilitate a stress-free exam for a fearful or stressed cat who visits the veterinary clinic. It can provide temporary anxiety relief for your cat while he or she is being examined by a strange person in a strange place. It does not completely sedate your cat, but rather allows them to have relaxation while still being aware of their surroundings. If your cat has been seen by us before (within the last year) and is not taking gabapentin for veterinary visits, but you are interested in helping your cat feel as calm as possible during visits, please call our front office to request the mediation. If you're a new patient or have not been seen within the last year, we may be able to recommend this medication after your cat's initial visit. If your cat is already taking Gabapentin to help facilitate stress free exams, please note how much your kitty receives prior to examination and please tell our veterinary team at the time of check in if your cat received this medication and when.
