How to tell if your cat is in pain
Your cat could be feeling pain for many different reasons. It can be caused by a variety of conditions, diseases, or injuries. It can be quite difficult to tell if your cat is in pain, where they are sore, and what is causing it. Cats are especially good at hiding their pain, and their signs can be subtle and easy to miss.
Some common signs that your cat is in pain include:
- Change in personality
- Increased thirst
- Trouble jumping up
- Increased vocalisation and meowing
What can you give a cat for pain relief?
Different types of pain will require different treatment. People often want to know what the best pain relief for cats is. But there is no hard and fast answer. Each cat will need different treatment depending on why they are feeling the pain, and how severe it is. Your vet will be able to diagnose your pet and recommend appropriate treatment. Short-term pain can often be treated with prescription opioid pain relievers.
Can I give my cat aspirin for pain relief?
We’re often asked about what human painkillers you can give a cat. The answer is very simple. There is no human pain killer you can give a cat. Ibuprofen and paracetamol are common pain relievers used by humans, but these are both very toxic for cats and dogs and should never be given to them. There are specific painkillers made for cats, and your vet will be able to help guide you in what treatment will best suit your pet.
Arthritis pain relief for cats
Cat arthritis is a common condition that makes it difficult for your pet to move around and can cause pain in their joints. Some causes of arthritis in cats are old age, injury, genetics and obesity. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are the most common treatment for cat arthritis - these can only be prescribed by a vet. If you suspect your cat has arthritis, a licensed veterinarian can help determine the best treatment option for your cat.
