Ibuprofen Poisoning


Ibuprofen is one of the most popular pain relievers and over-the-counter (OTC) medications that are available on the market today. Unfortunately it is not as effective in cats as it is in humans. In fact, Ibuprofen can rapidly approach toxic levels in your cat when it would not even treat your own headache.

Initially, the effect of the ibuprofen will quite likely result in a stomach ulcer in your cat. More importantly than this, if you continue to feed your cat ibuprofen, the result will be Cat Kidney Disease or even kidney failure if you don't seek out intervention from a vet.

One single ibuprofen tablet can lead to the death of your cat. Avoid treating your cat with ibuprofen and if necessary to gain pain relief, seek out the advice of a veterinarian. If your cat has been given or has accidentally taken ibuprofen, your best bet is to get the advice and treatment of a veterinarian immediately.
