Q. I took my cat to vet 3 hours before as she was in heat the vet gave her an injection of Depo-Provera but it she is still moaning

A. There may be pain at the site of injection. If she is not a show cat or breeding stock, she should be spayed. The side effects of this injection can be quite serious.
