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.
