How long does phantom pain last?
It depends on the dog and how it’s treated. You’ve made all the right moves to get the pain under control and hopefully that’s all that’s needed to help it remedy itself. In some cases, more is needed, like acupuncture etc., but right now, just take things one step at a time and see how this goes.
Is he still showing pain indicators? When was the gabapentin given? It may need a fine-tuning. Let your vet know if he is still crying out and yelping, or acting disinerested in food, etc.
I was giving it to him once a day, but the vet said that I could dose him twice a day if needed. Everything else is still great. The Phantom pain is still the only issue. I’m just being over-protective. I guess I just have to be patient. Thank you

Yeah you may want to up it to twice daily and see how it goes (remember, never stop it until you talk to your vet).
You’re not over-protective, you are a great advocate! How’s he doing today?
