What is Onsior for Cats?
Onsior for Cats is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that relieves pain and reduces inflammation associated with orthopedic and soft tissue surgery. The small, yeast-flavored tablets are favored by cats and are easy to administer. Onsior for cats is available in a 6mg 3-pack blister packet.

Find Onsior at PetMeds

For: Cats

Benefits:
Single dose quickly alleviates acute pain for 24 hours
Relieves pain associated with orthopedic and soft tissue surgery
Tasty yeast-flavored tablets accepted by most cats
Available in a 6mg 3-pack blister packet

How it works:
Onsior contains the active ingredient robenacoxib, an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) that targets the COX-2 enzyme that causes pain. It spares the COX-1 enzyme to protect your cat's gastrointestinal tract and blood platelet functions. The tablet is quickly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and is effective for 24 hours.

Cautions:
For cats only. Do not use with pregnant or lactating cats or those suffering from ulcers. Do not increase the dose, frequency, or length of time you administer Onsior, unless directed by your vet. Keep out of reach of children and other animals. In case of accidental overdose, contact a health professional immediately.

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Onsior and seek emergency veterinary medical attention: an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing, swelling of the lips, tongue or face, or hives). Other less serious side effects may occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that your cat experiences..

What special precautions are there:
For use to treat pain in cats only and not for more than 3 days duration. Exceeding the dose or duration of therapy may result in very serious life-threatening adverse reactions.

I can find lots of information about adverse/dangerous side effects of Onsior in cats but nothing about what can be commonly expected - i.e. sleepiness or nervousness, etc.

Answer: 
it is only giving for a short time. Possible side effects could be nausea/vomiting. Try it with some food or a snack in the stomach if this occurs. Possibly short term diarrhea. I would report any side effects to the vet however. It is a powerful drug.

Answer: 
It can only be used for 3 days. It is designed to be used in cats to alleviate pain after surgery.
Using any longer that 3 days would put a pet in danger of serious gastrointestinal issues.
