No, I read aprin half of what you give a child which is 81mg if I smash that up and put it in food would this hurt her. she seems in pain. didn't get pain meds bc she seemed ok. but today of coarse before thanksgiving shes miserable.

How much does Princess weigh?

Ask Your Own Cat Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
8 lbs (?) ish the vet estimated her age at 1 year. she has had kittens at one time.
Cat Veterinarian: Dr B, Cat Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Give her one 81 mg aspirin (baby aspirin) with food. Cannot repeat this but every 72 hours as it will be toxic any more frequently....and call your vet on Friday and ask for oral Buprenorphine......any cat with broken hip needs pain meds whether they act like it or not....

Cat Veterinarian: Dr B, Cat Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Once you get Buprenorphine do not need any other pain meds...she will be very comfortable with that...
