Andy does that. Eats some of whatever with tail wagging, then lets a bite drop out of his mouth and is no longer interested.

He's on 300mg of Gaba once a day. Which may be too much.

I just warmed up a piece of veggie quiche for myself. Andy wanted some, wagging his tail and giving me 'the look'. He ate that piece then lost interest. I'm baking a casserole of the ground lamb meat/organs/bones with green beans and a couple of eggs. Andy's hanging out in the kitchen. We'll see if it interests him. In any event, he's had a good portion of food tonight. As I said before, he's drinking water as normal.

Thanks for the good thoughts and feedback

Ah, you were faster with your reply and me with my edit to the post! I wanted to add that she was about 65 lbs at the time of that dosing. I agree that as long as he's drinking normally to take a wait and see approach for now.

That's the plan for now. That and trying different foods. We'll see how he likes the casserole once it cools down.

Andy's 85 pounds right now vs Hannah's 65 lbs then. Tonight I began cutting his Tramadol back to the 50mgs he's been getting for months. The 100mg gets him pretty looped and flashing me the peace sign with his right paw LOL

Danny, Andy's weight is good ( thanks to DAD & Mom) Tramadol will work but can make you a little off. (I use Tramadol for my Crohn's as needed). I use 50 mg and both my dogs did well on the same RX.
Hugs to Andy, Katie & Oliver!

Thanks! And Happy New Year

Your experience with it is very helpful in this case. Andy can't talk, so I can only guess how different drugs are affecting him. Luckily, humans take Gabapentin too, so I have that anecdotal evidence in addition to the experiences some here have kindly shared about their golden's reaction to it.

It seems like when one condition erupts, others follow. Like waves of the ocean come in sets.

The support of people who care about Andy is proof there is a lot of goodness in the world. I always leave GRF feeling as good or better than I felt before logging on. People who care about other people - skin and fur. Golden retriever love all over GRF. Heartwarming stuff

Our own little miracle is evidence of how people from around the world can touch each others lives in completely unexpected and good ways.

Happy New Year to you and Kevin and your whole wonderful family

Hope that Andy liked the casserole.
Glad that June (Bob Dylan) gave input on tramadol.
