Stomach ulcers are commun in small animal practice and occurs commonly in dogs due administration of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It is an often silent disease, difficult to diagnose and with serious consequences to health of the animal. Although well documented in dogs, there are few reports of ulcers associated with the use of NSAIDs in cats. This paper describes the death of three cats as a result of perforated ulcer and secondary peritonitis associated with NSAIDs administration. There were holes in the stomach pyloric region with white and rounded edges, and large amount of fluid in the abdominal cavity, hyperemia, the presence of fibrin. Although not commonly reported the occurrence of gastrointestinal ulcers in cats, it appears that these have been caused by the effect of prolonged administration and inadequate doses of NSAIDs.
