Sedating cat to get to vet

30 Mar

Above all, the best thing you can do to ease your cat's anxiety is to make sure that he is properly crate-trained.The more comfortable your cat is with his crate, the less anxious he will be during travel, and the less likely that he will show aggression at the airport.Place the carrier in your cat's favorite room and put a towel or pet bed inside.Further enhance the appeal of the carrier with a sprinkling of catnip or by regularly giving your cat tasty treats inside the carrier.The carrier should also have a secure latch on its door and side air vents so your cat can breathe fresh air.Train the cat to associate positive events with the carrier.

Do you know what it looks like to a client when you perform standing euthanasia on their pet?

Pet owners can help their cats get used to both the carrier and the car to help remove the foreignness of the situation.

Your vet can also suggest prescription medications to help calm your cat and soothe away motion sickness for a relaxed travel experience.

Hello Pet Relocation, I'm taking my cat on the plane but am super concerned about having to take him out at security. My vet prescribed 10mg Acepromazine for my 15.5 Ibs cat but I feel reluctant giving it. Sedatives can interfere with regular breathing and other bodily responses, and pets may react differently and unexpectedly to medications when they are in the air.

However, sedating a pet when flying is dangerous and is one of the worst things you can do for the safety of your pet.
