We have presented the time-dependent behaviors of a spin-1 Ising model (with both bilinear and biquadratic interactions) in the neighborhood of the equilibrium states via the path probability method. The rate equations as introduced by Keskin and coworkers (1989) have been linearized to obtain the characteristic relaxation times. The temperature variations of these times were produced in accordance with the Tanaka and Mannari's work (1976) on the equilibrium properties. Results are compared to one using Onsager's phenomenological theory and a good agreement is achieved.
