I did a search and found no refrences in relation to Sphynx and Toradol. I did find info about using it on cats in general and people have had sucess with it. I'm just concerned about if Sphynx have had any problems with it.
Was gonna say I got prescribed Tramadol after 2 lots of dental surgery, hated it, it compeltly wiped me out to the point where I passed out face first on the sofa - legs dangling off the end! Not sure if it was the dosage or combination of painkillers I was on, but I took one day of it and quit! Have 26 days supply in the cupboard LOL
When I end up in the hospital from my severe headaches, I get Toradol IV and it works like a charm. In terms of human use, I understand how it works, but I am not sure how it works with a cat's biology. It is really only to be used for acute pain and/or temporarily post-op/injury up to 5 days. It is classed as an NSAID and can cause problems (bleeding) with the GI tract, like with all NSAID's.
I too have taken Toradol in IV form (along with a ****tail of a couple other things) for migraine in the ER. I've never heard of it being used with a Sphynx. Do you have a trusted breeder that you are close to? Maybe he/or she might be a good place to start? Good luck!
I had this administered via IV when I was in the hospital and I had terrible reactions. I ripped all the IV's out, all the leads off of my chest (I was having chest pain). Then I proceeded to fight all the nurses to get out of the hospital. They had to strap me down and give me benedryl to calm me down. Apparently I was allergic!
