It does sound as if Star is experiencing a lot of pain.

Many dogs have their gabapentin increased as time goes on & the symptoms become more severe. Tommy went from 100mg x 3 to 200mg x3 daily when the symptoms worsened. Later metacam had to be added.
He is now on Lyrica 75mg X 2 daily but also needs metacam every day to keep him comfortable.
I do worry that we may be running out of options for him.
