It still does not answer my question - prescription medication for a cat but not approved for cats?

Prescribed medication but not approved for cats - how does that work?

Veterinarians use all kinds of medicines off label for animals. It's a common practice. Both medicines Jennie is on have to be specially compounded at a safe cat dose, and in the case of the gabapentin, to eliminate the xylitol.

Wedgewood is the compounding pharmacy my vet uses. If I wanted to use a different compounding pharmacy the vet would have had to write the prescriptions for me to send them in myself.

I love it!  I wish there was a picture of that "circle of cats."

I have THE hardest time getting pictures of the furkids.  Unless they are sleeping.  Most of them seem to know I want a picture, and will do whatever they can to make sure it doesn't happen.  Arrows is about the only one that will cooperate almost every time.

Also, it is a last resort kind of a thing.

Yes, moms - 8:30 tomorrow as I wanted to give it one more day. That means I will be in and out in 30 and at work before anyone misses me. She will also have to look at the bite on my arm as it is not healed yet. Really sharp young local lady who cares and goes out of her way.

Prescribed medication but not approved for cats - how does that work?

It's prescribed for humans but not for cats.  NSAIDS are your pain reliever/anti-inflammatories like aspirin and ibuprofen.  Both are no-no's for cats, but are safe for humans.
