Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello Madge, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.
I'm sorry for this concern about Rivka. I typically don't like to give aspirin to cats since it can be toxic for them but I have done so on a few occasions as long as the patient isn't vomiting and if the benefits outweigh the risks.
The dose for a cat would be 82 mg (low dose) every three days which would calculate to 1/4th of a 325 mg tablet. I usually advise that this drug be given with food to avoid stomach upset.
If you do give Rivka this drug tonight, I know you'll be certain to mention it to your vet if you have her seen tomorrow.
I hope this helps. Deb
You're more than welcome.
Best of luck with Rivka. Kind regards, Deb
By the way, I closed the other question you posted since there's no reason for you to be charged twice for the same question.
I would let her sleep as well if I were you. No sense waking her to give her medication at this point. Deb
