Mr C still won't take it. I've tried everything. And the one time I got him down, he went very stressy and anxious until about 3am then passed out into a coma till midday.

I've kept him off it. Do I persevere? He has another op coming up and I don't want to freak him out unnecessarily.

He is ok otherwise at the mo, seems very happy. Ate broccoli from my mother's plate yesterday ie had to be given own parsley-trimmed coq au vin platter, sat neatly at the table with us eating and then went for a snore on the sofa as did my dad.

Well it doesn't seem to do much for him by the sound of it.

Anything else they can give him?.

Hello Cory smile

I think I remember you saying he gets a crazy look in his eye for mayonnaise? I think Tramadol is a drug that brings on a bit of a sleepy feeling. Try coating it with mayo, or you could make a sort of ham, mayo and Tramadol hor's d'oeuvres and then he can enjoy his drug induced hazy-maze.

If that doesn't work, cat burrito time...

what does he need it for? could you take him to thevetsfor injections? not tramadol but buprecare or vetergesic?

tramadol isn't actually licenced for veterinary use but as there isno alternative available it can be used. it is morphine based and will make him sleepy.

Your cat eats better than me. And has access to good drugs.
