Methocarbamol is a muscle relaxant used to treat muscle spasms in dogs and cats.
Methocarbamol acts on the central nervous system to relax the muscles. It reduces muscle tremors and spasms caused by various diseases, trauma, or acute inflammation. This medication is often used to treat spasms caused by slipped disks or intervertebral disk disease in dogs. It may also be used to help control the effects of strychnine, tetanus, and permethrin poisoning.
Methocarbamol requires a prescription from your veterinarian. It is available in a 500mg tablet.
Give as directed by your veterinarian, and follow all instructions printed on the prescription label. Complete the entire prescription unless instructed otherwise by your veterinarian.
Store at room temperature, protected from light and moisture.
Keep out of the reach of children and pets. Do not use in pets with a known hypersensitivity or allergy to methocarbamol. Use with caution in animals that are pregnant or lactating. Do not use in animals with kidney disease. Methocarbamol may interact with some other medications. Therefore, inform your veterinarian if your pet is taking any other medications or supplements. The sedative effects of this medication may increase if used with other drowsiness-inducing drugs. If you notice any behavioral or physiological changes in your pet while giving methocarbamol, contact your veterinarian immediately.
