phantom limb pain in kitty
We have a 3 legged cat about 1 year old, that lost his leg as a very young kitten. We have noticed that about 1 time per month, she will be very agitated growling and hissing. She is normally very cuddly and loving. The vet agrees with me that it is probably neurogenic pain from the loss of a limb and wants to start her on Gabopentin. Since her pain is intermittent we hesitate to start such a drug. Does anyone out there have experience with phantom limb pain and management in cats?
