I'm sorry to hear your cat is having an issue.

CAn I ask you a couple questions?

How old is your cat?

Why is she/he being treated with Pet Tinic?

How much are you giving and how often?

Rizzo is 18. She has back problems and I think it was tramadole that we tried before that almost made her speed so my vet recommended this for help with back pain, her .6ml twice a day. Just started today and she seems to be in a daze.

Well, I'm not sure how much Pet Tinic will help with back pain. It is just a vitamin supplement. It has no pain relieving properties at all.

I don't think side effects are very common. I guess anything is possible though. The dose sounds appropriate. I guess I would try giving it just once a day for a day or two and see how she does with it. If you gave her some tonight then wait til tomorrow night to give it again.

Like I said, it is not a pain medication so maybe what you are seeing is pain response and not a medication reaction.

Of course if you are worried you should take her back to your vet for an exam or call them on the phone to see what they think.

I hope this helps. Best wishes!
