As you can imagine, surgery will cause some pain. Pay attention to your cat's behavior in the days following surgery. He or she may be providing clues that he or she is in pain and needs help. To manage this pain, your veterinarian may prescribe pain relief that you can administer at home, such as Onsior® (robenacoxib).
Remember – If you are concerned that pain is lasting longer or is worse than expected, contact your veterinarian. Only your veterinarian is qualified to diagnose your cat's condition and, if necessary, suggest treatment that may include alternate modalities or additional therapy.
If you answered yes to one or more questions, your cat may be asking for help.
Contact your veterinarian to discuss your observations and schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
