What can you give your cat for pain caused by a burn?
Any animal that has been burned faces:
- tissue destruction
- risk of infection
- risk of body-fluid imbalance because fluids will "leak" through the burned area
- potential disability or death from either the burn itself or complications
Under NO circumstances should a burned animal be treated at home. Do NOT use any margarine or lotion on a burn; both make the burn keep "burning" the tissues.
DO take your pet to the Vet. The pet will need the burn area professionally cleaned. The vet will likely give a special burn ointment. The area may need a dressing.
A burn heals slowly, so it needs extra care. Please do the right thing and take your pet to a Vet.
If you believe your cat is in pain, your vet will be able to prescribe medication that is safe to give to your cat. Aspirin and any other human medication, no matter how small the amount, should be avoided. Cats are much smaller than humans, so it is incredibly easy to give your cat the wrong amount and cause it to overdose. If you believe your cat is in pain, take it to the vets…
If this has happened take your cat to the vet immediately! This is a serious injury and should be handled by a vet. The vet can clean and treat the wound. They will give your cat antibiotics to insure deadly infection does not set in, and will give your cat safe medications to alleviate pain. It is not fair to make the cat suffer by not taking it to a vet, and human pain medication…
Cats are extremely susceptible to medications. Consult your vet about your concerns and they will be able to provide you with information on how to alleviate the pain. Depending on what is causing the pain the cat may be given antibiotics, pain meds or other palliatives. Keep your cat warm and in a comfortable, soft bed.
Nothing at home - human medications can be very toxic to cats and you could accidentally kill your cat. I would strongly recommend taking your cat to the vet - he/she can examine your cat and figure out what is causing the pain. Then the underlying problem can be fixed rather than just masking the symptom (pain).
NO!!! You should never, EVER give your cat ANY medication unless your vet says it's okay. Many human medications can permanently injure, or even kill, a cat. If you have any concerns about your cat's health, the best thing to do is always to take the cat to a qualified veterinarian. Furthermore, Valium isn't even a painkiller to begin with. It is an anti-anxiety medication. It does not relieve pain. So, even if it were…
you should never give it anything unless a vet first accepts it. also if your cat is dying and the vet cannot help it don't try to help it yourself just listen to the vet and if he gives the option of putting her/him down then do so to end his/her pain. letting an animal suffer with the pain is unnatural.
Your kitten has just had her claws removed and the vet suggests nothing for pain. There is not that much pain but she seems uncomfortable. What and how much pain medications can you give her?
Ibuprofen For A Cat: Technically, NO, you can't give anything to a cat. Ibuprofen is deadly to cats and "Ibuprofen is reported to have potential for serious side effects in dogs and cats and is not recommended for use in these species." (Applied Pharmacology for the Veterinary Technician) NEVER give your pet any medication without first consulting your vet. When I find out on occasion what medication I am to give my pets then I…
Cat metabolism is very different from humans; drugs like aspirin that are innocuous to humans will kill a cat (there is a metabolic pathway in cats that turns aspirin into cyanide), and morphine, which makes humans sleepy, will make a cat hyper. Do not give any drugs to a cat unless advised to by a vet.
