Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
what product are you using? plain tramadol or another that contains acetaminophen?
tramadol 50 mg,
is your kitty having any pain?
is this from a vet office?
how much does kitty weight?
she is limping, i think she got her foot caught on the bed when she jumped off
not sure on her weight
we dose drugs on weight, so please make a good estimate?
sometimes cats can have reactions to certain opiates. Although tramadol is a strong opiate, I have given it to cats
i do need a weight, though
hang on. let me take a look in the book
should i be worried that she is limping and how long should i wait before taking her to the vet
how long since it happened?
feel any swelling?
putting any weight on it?
not that i can tell
sometimes yes and sometimes no
i would look at toenails, then up to toes, then up to hock
feel all up and down
feel for swelling or heat
not feeling any swelling or heat
her dose would be 6 mg, which is 1/8 of a tablet. hard to cut down like that. Mostly with cats, they shoot out a lot of endorphins when they are injured, so you may want to let her rest on it and see how she looks in the morning,without any meds. Def cannot give tylenol or advil or anything like that. If she is non-weight bearing in the morning, I would have your vet look at it
i would not do meds in case she had some reaction to it. I would not feed tonight in case they need to sedate for anything
just try and keep her enclosed and see how she looks in morning. let me know if you have any more questions. Please dont forget to rate my answer if I was helpful.
ok thank you
welcome. hope she feels better
