Ask a Cat Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, I can help you with your question today.
I have a few suggestions.
I don't think that oral sedation will be helpful.
It is very unreliable, and I also think she would detect the taste and avoid any pills.
Instead, I would consider making an appointment with a housecall vet and let them know that they will likely require quick and injectable sedation with her.
If you want to try to get her to your regular vet, you can try to put her in a pillow case.
This is effective for many of my aggressive patients.
After they are in the pillow case, it is much easier to handle them.
You can even put the pillow case into a carrier for safety travelling in the car.
I think these would be the safest two options for everyone involved.
She is not a petty cat and has never sat on my lap , she allows you to clap her but that is it , she has never been lifted.
I do not have a regular vet as it has been 20 years since her last visit although I am sure I could find one on line.
No problem. Perhaps a housecall vet would be our best option.
I think it would be a good idea to have some senior blood work checked.
I'm suspicious she might have hyperthyroidism. This is one of the more common causes of increased vocalization in older kitties.
Is this something that is treatable ?
Yes. It can be treated with oral tablet, oral liquid or a transdermal lotion.
The tablet might be a good option, they are tasteless and can be crushed and hidden in food.
Thank you for your help it is much appreciated
