Swollen neck, grumpiness and air licking
Charlie not having a good day.
His normally well fitting collar is snug and his neck feels swollen so I've removed it.
He's grumpy and has spent a lot of time growling. He's been licking the air as well as the patio door.
He's on gabapentin three times a day taking 1.0, .08 and .08 over a 24-hour period. He's also taken Tramadol. The air pressure has dropped. I don't think Tramadol is accomplishing anything.
Currently he's sleeping next to me on the chair in an almost vertical position leaning into the corner between me and the chair.
Would cimitidine be better than Tramadol--a pain killer.
He's been on gabapentin for 11 months and the dose quantity is steadily increasing.
Is there anything else I can do for him?
