Cat Pain

Hello. My cat was hit by a car one week ago. Took him to vet. They said nothing broken, just bruised. He did say he had some loss of sensation in his tail. He was doing fine...resting, eating, urinating pooping. Three days ago I started giving him the prednisone the doc gave him. Within two hours, he was pretty much back to himself...wrestling with my other cat (which for the 1st 3 days, he would not play). Now, he is walking around like its very painful. Every once and a while he will crouch on his fore arms and put his butt in the air and meow loudly like its painful. Has the prednisone given him false hope that he is all better? I havent given him any today because Im afraid he will move around too much before he is ready. What should I do??? As long as he is lying down, he is good...

Thanks for your help,

No I think if the vet has prescribed some pain relief for your cat you should give it to him. If i were you i would telephone your vet to find out if the pain relief med also has other actions. Some also have anti inflammatory properties etc and so is doing good too.

Its not really fair to allow your cat to be in pain if their is something you can do about it. My cat recently hurt his leg so i know how worrying it is.

Hope he is better soon

best wishes KAte
