Sorry, just one important note I forgot to add then I promise to shut up! Yes, thanks for your vigorous enthusiasm. I forgot to say what else my vet told me when I asked for pain meds for Amber after her spay. The vet said there was another problem with sending home pain meds, even mild ones--that you can never predict exactly how a particular animal will respond to any given drug. Pain meds that have worked great on hundreds of cats could unexpectedly (and tragically) have an unexpected SERIOUS reaction in a cat. In the hospital that's not such a big worry cause the cats are supervised and vets can make emergency interventions. But if something like that happened at home.....would you really want to risk it??
