Sedating a cat for travel in a car
This is a liquid solution you administer to your cat orally at least 1 hour prior to travel.
Feliway is a great product that comes in a spray that allows you to spray in the carrier and car.So when you are sedating your stressed cat while taking it to the vet for a checkup or going on a long trip you are actually using medication to relax him, not making him unconscious. So it is obvious to ask why to sedate them when they are already so sleepy.Besides, sedation is way too less harmful to cats than anesthesia. You should know cat sedation is not something you apply regularly or overdo it.Leave the basket out days prior to travel so that they get used to the box and if possible, try feeding him or her a meal or laying treats inside for them to find so they can associate nice things with the cat box.
