Drug options for provision of analgesia in cats are limited. When administered IV, lidocaine has been reported to provide analgesia in various painful conditions … in several species including humans, rats, horses, and rabbits. However, to our knowledge, no data are available on the potential clinical use of IV administration of lidocaine as a systemic analgesic in cats.
