Neurontin or Gabapentin is an effective painkiller that veterinarians often prescribe to dogs to prevent chronic pain. It can also be given to dogs experiencing a lot of discomfort from anal sac disease. By eliminating the pain, dogs will not feel compelled to disturb the affected area and potentially make any infection worse. Gabapentin should only be used when prescribed by a veterinarian, as potential side effects include nausea, drowsiness and vomiting. Antibiotics are also a recommended additional treatment to get rid of bacterial infections.
