Methocarbamol is a prescription medication FDA approved for veterinary use in dogs, cats, and horses. It is a muscle relaxant used to treat muscle spasms caused from various diseases, traumas, or ingesting toxic substances.
Methocarbamol 500mg tablet is indicated in the treatment of acute inflammatory and traumatic conditions of the skeletal muscle. It is commonly used to manage muscular spasms in dogs, cats and horses. Methocarbamol is found to be effective in treating conditions like intervertebral disc syndrome, synovitis, convulsions, fibrositis, myositis, compressive myelitis, spinal cord injury and insecticide poisoning among others. It could be used in combination with medications commonly used to treat these conditions like adrenal corticosteroids, without any adverse side effects.
The usual dose of Methocarbamol for dogs and cats of all sizes is typically 20-30mg per pound of the animal's body weight every 8-12 hours for the first day followed by 10-30mg per pound of body weight every 8-12 hours thereafter.
Some of the common side effects of Methocarbamol in dogs and cats include drooling, sedation, emesis, muscular weakness and vomiting, which usually should subside in a few days. If symptoms persist, consult the veterinarian without any delay.
Methocarbamol is the Generic Alternative to Robaxin.
