…Gabapentin and Tramadol the same rime, maybe space them out an hour or two apart.

It's possible based on what you said that Homer is experiencing phantom limb pain.  The Gabapentin should help that.  Again, check with yiur Vet butnit may be that the Gabapentin needs ro be given every twelve hours, but maybe at

…vet today and had them prescribe more tramadol, which I've now picked up. He seems to be much calmer after this, but it seems he must be having some phantom limb pain (I can't figure out what else it might be) because every now and then he'll try to stand up in a total panic and howl in pain. He's always such a

…pets. Stewie goes once every week to two weeks and we find that he licks at his incision site far less often. We think that he suffered from some phantom limb pain and we don’t see any more sudden jumps or yelps. This person also does Ortho-Bionomy treatments on him, to help keep his spine aligned. We do

…because its an anti-inflammatory. My cat was on an opioid, Medicam (anti-inflammatory/pain med). Sometimes people also need Gabapentin for phantom limb pain.

Others will let you know what pain meds they used for their dogs. Please phone your vet in the morning for a pain medication because you want to

…patch. That seemed to have did the trick, and though the fentanyl patch comes off now, I think we may be in the clear. Dr's think he was having bad phantom limb pain. He should have started gabapentin the day before surgery, he started a week after since we were dealing with a vet that didn't know what he was

…the exact same reason! Our electric company just put a smart meter on our home and Purrkins who is going on a year and half amputee started having phantom limb pain episodes after the smart meter was installed. That is the only thing that changed for Purrkins to just start having phatom limb episodes? Upon

…was thankfully introduced to us, but a lot of vets aren’t aware of the benefits of Gabapentin for both pain and helping to control any form of Phantom limb pain. You know Lindt the best, so don’t hesitate to call your vet to talk about what Lindt may or may not need. Every dog is different, so check out the

…say this is to be expected so that he can heal and rest up.  I haven't read much about this type of pain but I've a feeling that this is still the phantom limb pain.   I'm hoping that this is something which will go and soon as it's agony for him and I can't seem to do anything to make this better

…to toilet.  We're so worried and have been broken hearted that this should happen to our lovely boy.  He is on pain meds and because he had some phantom limb pain we've been advised to continue with a high dose for another week.  Perhaps it's a combination of the drugs and surgery recovery and we're expecting

…walk and then we knew we had pushed him too far. (Thanks to that great advice in this site.) 

Stewie did and sometimes still does get signs of Phantom limb pain when he has done too much. But that has lessened considerably since we started him on acupuncture.

…) we have for her. Thanks to an article I read here tonight, I'll be asking for the amantadine tomorrow.

They also did not explain to look for phantom limb pain or hyperalgesia, and I can only assume she has at least one if not both of these going on if her lack of appetite, licking, tenderness around the

…addressed phantom pain
? Nor Gabapentin? Hot/cold compresses?

Interesting take your vet has there...the symptoms certainly seem to indicate phantom limb pain. Pain management can be tricky, especially nerve pain, as can identifying pain symptoms in cats and dogs.

…  For what it's worth - the gabapentin has been a LIFE SAVER for Maddie.  She's 6 weeks post surgery and I think she still occasionally will have a phantom limb pain - she'll just randomly yelp and look at where her leg used to be, then go on with whatever she was doing.  That never happened when on gabapentin.

Phantom limb pain generally strikes quickly with loud yelps and the dog or cat trying to move away from the pain.  The nerve endings are firingg off signals to a leg

…alternate meds so there is always something in the pups system.  Always discuss any med changes with your vet.  Her outbursts sound a little like phantom limb pain- gabapentin is often prescribed to control that.

Based on what you are seeing I think a call to the vet is in order.  You can discuss what you
