PetCareRx | Pet Meds and Supplies - Pet Medications and Pharmacy
I realize this is an old post but it’s a recent problem for me. My cat needs meds for a life threatening condition and I have tried so hard, watched and tried to follow every YouTube video with no luck. He clamps his jaws shut and when you get them open constantly moves his tongue and flicks it out.
Pet parents wondering what they can give their cat for pain need to first be aware of the dangers associated with many of the pain meds, like nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), found around the typical home. Examples of NSAIDs include aspirin and ibuprofen for people or carprofen, etodolac, and deracoxib for dogs. Cats are extremely sensitive to the side effects of NSAIDs, and this class of medication needs to be used with extreme caution (if at all) in cats and always under the close supervision of a veterinarian.
Cat pain relief is notoriously difficult. Pain meds routinely given to people and dogs can be toxic to cats. Which begs the question, “What are the safest and most effective pain meds for cats?”Welcome to Joe's. If you are like us then you must be sick and tired of paying the inflated prices that vets charge for pet meds.

Joe setup a Joe's Pet Meds to ensure that we can now all enjoy discount pet medications everyday.Pain meds for cats should only be given to cats under close veterinary supervision. Pain of short duration is often treated with a prescription opioid pain reliever called buprenorphine, but this medication can be costly over the long run. Chronic pain associated with inflammation, like that caused by , tends to respond best to multi-modal therapy (taking several approaches at once), which often does not include what might be considered traditional pain meds at all.Pain meds are not the only, or sometimes even the best, way to provide cat pain relief. Talk to your veterinarian to determine what combination of diet and other forms of therapy might be right in your cat’s case.Joe's Pet Meds is run by a small but enthusiastic team of pet lovers.

Stressful! She was already terrified! Trying to pill her the way I was used to just led to both of us being nervous wrecks. I found that the way that worked best for us was to invest in Pill Pocket treats, and stick them on top of her canned food at meal time. Took the stress off everyone and she got her meds.Discontinuing an anticonvulsant medication suddenly can be quite dangerous for your cat. Never stop giving the medication or change the dosage without checking with your veterinarian first. When anticonvulsant medications need to be discontinued, it is best to withdraw the medication in a slow and gradual manner, weaning your cat off the meds.We are often asked if you need a prescription for your pet medications. If you require a prescription for any product on our web site then you'll see an Rx symbol clearly displayed next to it and you'll be prompted to enter your prescription details during the checkout process. If not then the pet meds are sourced and dispensed from a jurisdiction that does not require prescription.
