Hello! I would argue that pain meds have a vital role in amputation. However, please do not give them yourself. First, because various common, safe pain meds in humans are actually toxic to cats and can make them very poorly. Second, because the reason you have not come home with pain releif may be that it has already been given, during the op, and a dose given now could constitute an overdose.
