Yes the vet had the weight on the bottle. But liquid sounds so much better. I was given pills for her. I will definitely ask for the liquid one next time. Thank you.My opinion for what it's worth and as a Gabapentin user is that calming treats are not going to help at all in this instance (if at all)
Gabapentin has a very specific amount for best effectiveness. As I already said, 100 mg is the standard for adult cats unless one uses it daily in which case I've heard people say they use smaller amounts.
However, for a one shot kind of thing like going to the vet 100 mg is the most effective amount. And even that sometimes won't work - our girl was so anxious once that it didn't do a thing for her which our vet confirmed is a possibility. Probably also because she had eaten a full meal before we dosed her.
We tried doing 50 mg and 75 mg and neither helped at all but the 100 mg is perfect. I only use the liquid type, not pills so I don't know if that makes a difference.
Any vet should be able to dose the cat properly for their age/weight/size.
