My vet gave our cat 10Mg of AMITRIPTYLINE after she lost her kittens and was spay is that a normal dosage?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the kitten?

Clif Notes

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the kitten seem to hurt?

Shes a Persian We breed 66 days after she picked out the same spot she'd had a litter 2 years before!

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the kitten's name?

I took her to our vet after she started passing what was after birth Jocey

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the kitten?

What she passed was NOT after birth It was the REMAINS of a kitten that was being reabsorbed

I am sorry to hear about what happened with our Persian. How much does she weigh? I usually give a cat 5 mg of amitriptyline. How long ago did she get it, and how is she acting?

Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

I looked up in my drug book; one source says you can give a cat as much as 12.5 mg, so she should be OK. She may seem sedated for awhile.

How is she doing? Do you have other questions about her?

She was spay. I'm concerned she's going to get constipated.

She is in a daze
Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

How long ago did she get the amitriptyline? It will wear off over the next 12 to 24 hours. Keep her quiet, minimal stimulation, and keep her food and water nearby.

Constipation should not be a problem and is not listed as a side effect in cats; she might be more likely to have vomiting and diarrhea.
