Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?
1) Are you seeing any abnormalities in the way he walks? 2) Of which body parts did they take x-rays? 3) Did they find any abnormalities on his exam alone? 4) Was any blood work run at that time? If not, when was the most recent run?
Thank you for your reply.He could certainly have a reaction to the Revolution, but if he's been receiving this long-term this is unlikely. That said, it would not hurt to call the company and discuss adverse reactions to the medication to see if they have had anyone reporting the same concern with their cat or dog.If your vet has been unable to find anything on x-ray and palpation and the NSAIDs haven't helped, I would ask about trying a few days of pain medication like buprenorphine or tramadol. If this does not work, I would then request to see a specialist to have more advanced testing done if you're wanting answers. An MRI may be indicated if they cannot find a neurological or other component that might explain his symptoms.
