Cats and Pain Relievers
Cats are notorious for their ability to hide their pain, which is key survival in the wild. Thus knowing when you need to intervene and help your cat with pain relievers is difficult. You may only suspect your cat is in pain because she hides from you. Never give your cat pain relievers formulated for humans or dogs since these medications could harm your cat harm or even kill her. Your cat is sensitive to pain medication so she will often need a lower dose than other species. Often you will give your cat pain medication at longer intervals and for a shorter total time. Sometimes other treatments can help eliminate the cause of pain such as dietary changes or weight reduction. Make an appointment with your vet clinic Burlington, ON if you suspect your cat is in pain for evaluation and proper treatment if needed.
