Your Veterinarian Can Prescribe Cat Pain Relief

Surgery may need stronger or longer-lasting drugs.

Common opioids include fentanyl and buprenorphine. Your vet may give your cat opioids before and during a surgery to lessen pain response and anesthesia, and they may be sent home as short-acting or long-lasting pain relief.
