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

…  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.

Does Leslie have muscle twitching as well or just the lightening bolt phantom limb pain? Is the twitch part of the pp?

…so we greatly appreciate the information. What she says is spot on and the methods to alleviate the pain is similar to what's recommended in our phantom limb pain blog posts. What's so strange (and good thing) is that not all Tripawds experience this pain. Our Wyatt Ray
