Pet Death and Topical Pain Medication

I don’t have words for this. I just randomly came across this link while reading something totally unrelated. My kitty, who was my four legged child, suddenly died on Wednesday. I still am devastated. I just came across this link, and have probably found the answer. I had been using the pain cream for 6 days. I don’t have words for how I feel. Maybe this can save another kitty’s life.

  1. I am so very sorry Beachy…to lose a beloved pet is difficult in and of itself and I can only imagine that to know it came from such a source is doubly painful. The title of your post is perfect in case anyone else is searching for info and I applaud you coming on in this time of grief to warn the rest of us. As you know I’m on a topical med also…so thanks. I have no pets but I do spend time at my boyfriends parents house and they have pets…gosh to think I was over there this weekend with sandals on and my ankle slathered in medication….I’ll be doubly careful from now on when I’m out anywhere and around animals.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing. I have a dog and 2 cats and my dog is always trying to lick lotion off of me. If I am prescribed some sort of compound cream I will be extra cautious thanks to this post.

  3. Hi Beachy,
    My heart goes out to you for your lose. All of my children have four legs, and I know how much you love and must miss your kitty. Thanks for sharing the link; I am sure you have helped more than a few pet lovers.

  4. Hi Beachy,
    So sorry for your loss. I am new to this site. Have learned a lot already. I ruptured mine March 13, 2015. 3 weeks NWB cast then boot. I will be at 7 weeks when I take a much needed beach vacation. Any suggestions on how to make it pleasant and not scary? My fear is I will trash the boot walking on the beach. I will be level walking by then as all lifts will be gone. Maybe I won’t be walking on beach?

  5. Thank you, and welcome to the site, there is so much information and support here!

    I was in the boot before surgery too, and when I had to go on the beach for events, I used a black trash bag cut to fit, and wrapped it in tape. Attractive? Probably not, but my boot didn’t get sandy or wet! Boot was black, bag was black, wasn’t that noticeable and got the job done.

    I will advise you that walking in sand after surgery is VERY hard and painful. I’m currently 18 weeks, and it’s still painful and hard for me, but I’m walking without the boot. Not sure if the beach you’re going to is sandy or hard packed. Here, ours is very sandy, so your foot is very unstable. I couldn’t imagine walking in the sand at 7 weeks, even in the boot. Of course if the beach is hard packed, it shouldn’t be a problem at all. Be very careful and enjoy your vacation! Happy healing!

  6. Beachy,
    My rupture did not require surgery. Sure it will still be painful. Thanks. I ordered a cover to use in the shower so I will bring that. Black bag will work too.

  7. Hey Beachy…I love the pic of your kitty! Again, I am so sorry, it bleepity bleeps big time to lose a beloved!

    I just wanted you to know I’ve stopped using the compounding cream. I developed a itchy red rash and am told after several weeks of use I’ve developed a allergic reaction. My tendon/incision is still sensitive, going to live with it for now.

  8. Sorry to hear about your loss. I was away when you posted this. She was so beautiful. I also have a cat so appreciate the information. Hope you are continuing to heal on all fronts.
