I've spoken a lot about Bella, my little kitty with kidney issues, but today I am posting about her sister Maya. Maya is about to come home today from a routine dental cleaning with some extractions (she's had extractions over the years), but today was the 1st day a vet gave her what they called a long acting pain reliever called Zorbium. They told me when they called with the post surgery report. They said this is so that I as the owner wouldn't have to worry about medicating my cat daily while she heals and is still tender. Upon my googling today, it looks like this is a buprenorphine (sp?) or Buprenex (sp?) type of drug (like I used to get in a little squirt syringe years back at previous dentals for Bella and Maya for a few days worth of pain relief after extractions). I couldn't help but think man....a drug that lasts for a few days in ones system?? That must be a strong drug. Can anyone recommend anything (perhaps even homeopathic...or something else) to help Maya process this drug from her system efficiently? Her blood results and overall health has been normal for an almost 14 year old kitty. Thank you!
