Hello again I have worked out an answer for you below ... 1. The situation is that cats are very sensitive to non-steroidal anti-inflammatories such as Banamine and are prone to GI ulceration from these drugs. Banamine often has had adverse effects in dogs and cats so much so that I personally would never recommend giving banamine to a cat, sorry ... 2. Unfortunately where a cat is in pain human over the counter drugs are not really suitable and often downright dangerous to cats, however your vet can supply prescription drugs which are very much safer as well as being very effective.I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.
