Hello,

10 year old silver lab Digger, Had to have his broken nail removed. The vet gave him gabapentin to take for pain, but he is already on CBD. Can I give them together?

Thank you,

Missy

Yes Melissa! However, you may need a lower dose of the gaba to avoid drowsiness from the combo. of meds.

What is the CBD for? The gaba. + CBD may even have a synergistic effect.

He currently takes .5 ml twice a day of a 43mg hemp oil to help his arthritis. The gaba is 300 mg 1 capsule twice a day.

Which CBD are you using to help his arthritic discomfort?

CBDA is a critical component of the CBD used for pain relief. The highest CBDA level is found in Ellevet:

He takes the 50 mg human grade cbd from Charlottes Web. Thoughts? Also, did the thumbs up mean it was ok to give the CBD and gabapentin? Thank you

Ellevet is a more effective anti-inflammatory because of a higher CBDA level than in every other brand. Probably including Charlotte's, but I don't that brand specifically.

Yes. The only issue might be sedation from the combo. of the two. But if you see this, just lower the doses of the meds.

Since gabapentin is pretty useless for acute pain, maybe the CBD will help it have some effect.
