Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello,Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is***** am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
I am sorry you did not get help from an expert before now. I just came online and saw your question. I am sorry to hear your cat is so uncomfortable.
There are no over the counter muscle relaxants that are safe for cats. You can give methocarbamol (Robaxin), 100 mg 2 to 3 times daily.
Gabapentin may be a good idea since she sounds painful and it may be neuropathic pain, pain from an injury to the spinal cord or nerves. 25 to 50 mg twice daily. It is by prescription.
If this started from an injury, pain medication such as Onsior and buprenorphine might help. What pain meds is she getting now?
I hope you were able to see my response; I have not heard back from you! Can I help with any other questions?
