Are cats any more cooperative when taking pain meds?
I'm debating a mastectomy for my kitty (there is another post on this and I'd love to hear stories from others who have done this).
Anyway, one issue is I don't want to put her through unneccessasry pain. If she were a person I'd say "well at least she can have pain meds to get her through it". But as we all know, cats are not cooperative about taking meds.
I'm wondering if they are any more cooperative about taking pain meds? I'd like to think that on some level they knew the pain meds made them feel better. Or if she is weak from the surgery, maybe she wouldn't fight me as much. Or maybe she would fight and her fight would be painful because of the surgery. Anyway, I'd love to hear if kitties are better about taking pain meds than they are regular medicine.
