I have a cat, Sassie, I rescued when she was 4 weeks ol, she is now 14. Sassie is strictly indoor. I believe she has Arthritis in her L hindquarter. I have been putting cold compresses on her but she is only going to take that for so long. I have been disabled for 18 years due to a Spinal Disease. Right now I don't have the money to take her to the Vet, at least not until Saturday. Can you please give me some ideas to keep her comfortable? I do have some pain medicine at home for my back but I don't know how much to give, if any? Can you please help me, she has never been sick, not in14 years and I am scared. Thank You

Dear Monica,

You cannot give human pain medications to a cat. Cats are very sensitive and cannot tolerate them. We recommend Promaxol our homeopathic pain reliever. It is safe for cats and easy to give since it is liquid and well received. You might also try some hot packs to see if she prefers it to the cold pack. If you would like some other holistic suggestions please contact us again once you have a diagnosis.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
