I agree with Karlin, I have dogs with cm/sm and cm. All of them are on higher doses of Gabapentin than Merlin. Some of my dogs are on Lyrica/Pregabalin which is a more potent form of Gabapentin. One of my dogs suffered symptoms almost identical to Merlin, most vets do not understand or have the experience of the range of symptoms cm/sm presents this is why it is important to see an experienced neurologist like Dr. Rusbridge. I would not put Merlin through an xray, an increase in pain medication under the supervision of a neurologist is more likely needed.
