Sedating my cat
Do you have any other tips to help Karen help Graylie? Cat allergy symptoms Diagnosing allergies in cats Antihistamine dosage for cats Antihistamines are a class of drugs which block the effects of histamine, a chemical produced by the mast cells and basophils in response to a real (bacteria/virus/fungus) or perceived (allergen such as dust) invasion.And probably this is why the house-call vet wants to bring an assistant.Just make sure that both the vet and the assistant are experienced and comfortable with restraining cats — it’s a lot different from restraining dogs!Histamine binds to receptors (docking stations) on specific cells, which trigger several responses such as dilation of the blood vessels, which causes fluid to leak into nearby tissue (runny nose, watery eyes for example) as well as inducing itchiness and smooth muscle contraction, which can lead to breathing difficulty due to bronchodilation.
Bella: House-call vets can be a godsend for people whose cats freak out at the vet, and that may be a good option for your Graylie.
Some cats are a poor sedation risk because of health issues, but we don’t know if your cat is one of those.
Thomas: Sometimes sedation is required for the cat’s safety as well as that of the clinic’s staff.
This can vary depending on the underlying cause, but it is common for allergies in cats to affect the skin.
Depending on the cause, symptoms may be seasonal or non-seasonal.
Thomas: You may know your cat better, but a trained professional will be able to quickly and restrain Graylie in a way that’s not about manhandling but about safety.
