Giving Vicodin to my Cat... May. 20th, 2007 @ 07:35 AM Reply

Ok,
I know this sounds crazy, thats why i've come here for opinions.

My cat recently got wayyy messed up in a fight, at least I think a fight, and hes limping around and crying out like crazy whenever he moves. I have some vicoden I recived from my girlfriend. I was THINKING about cutting it up into 1/4 section (a small amount) and shoveing it down the cats throat.

BUT... I am afriad it might have some sort of weird affect on the cat...

What do you guys/girls think? Any opinions?

thanks for the help

Try taking him to a vet.

Or grind it down to dust and put the fucking smallest lil bit a toothpick can hold on the end of it, smear that on some ham, give ham to cat, eat cat.

I thought about that. I don't trust vets. Another problem is that it's the weekend and the vet is not open. I will take the cat in Monday if he is not better by then.

Your right though, I should give him a super low dose and see what that does first.

BTW, his name is Richard Parker

Yes.

No. Put the whole thing in with a can of cat food or similarly portioned consumable. If you're gonna watch a cat spaz out you may as well make the most of it.

eat cat.

Maybe as a last resort.

I dont give a rats ass if you trust vets or not,you shouldnt give your little kitty an entire drug that was meant for human consumption. Do what the guy says,give the cat a very small amount and take it to the vets on monday.

Try giving him some sudafed or any other OTC medicine that lists drowsiness as a side affect. Vicodin is MUCH too powerful for a six pound house cat.

What?

All I'm saying is that Vicodin is intended for adult human beings, even when cut into fourths, it would be way too large a dose for an animal of that size. Also, Vicodin contains drugs in addition to the painkiller hydrocodone - I believe it also contains a sedative and anti-nausea drugs, but I'm not sure. It'll probably make the cat constipated and slow it's breathing.

Goodmorning peeps,
I crushed a small amount up and dabbed my fingure in it and then put it on the cats toungh last night. It seemed to work fine, I'll probably give him more today and then take him to the vet tomorrow if hes not better by then.

There's got to be some sort of cat welfare vet or a vet in your area that will work with you on a sliding pay scale.

Usually what they give animals is the same sort of stuf yes, but you can't break up time released tablets like that. Baaaad news. :(

Yeah thats true, but he only gave him a tiny bit.

My kitty has done lots of things :D i've given him gin with milk (he loved this) i gave him a bit of psilocybin mushrooms, and he tripped with me, i've smoked hydro with him, and given him tokes.

cats like to have fun too.

you dont trust vets with your cat but you are willing to give it human drugs without any idea what they will do on the advice of randomers from the internet.

you shouldnt have a cat, and NEVER have children, EVER!

Go to a vet first. Don't put him on painkillers.
