ouch! I accidently stepped on my cats foot!

I think my cat is going to be ok but he is limping. can I give him a little asaprin ? (if so how much? He is 11 lbs)

He has a heart condition and is taking Benazopril and Atenenol every day.

Thanks, MJ

Hi no I never recommend that you give a cat pain medication which has not been prescribed. Also with his heart problem it could cause problems as aspirin thins the blood.

My advice would be to telephone your vet in the morning and ask there advice, they may want to see the cat as it is very easy to break a bone in the foot if we humans step on it. If there is a break or fracture it is best to be checked and perhaps to be treated with antibiotics to prevent any infection setting.

I hope he is better soon

best wishes Kate
