What is the best way to sedate a cat?

  • Through your vet. Usually if you put the cat in a cat carrier (you can buy these second-hand at dog grooming places at a considerable lower cost and then sanitize it) there is no need for sedation before taking the cat to the vets. If you are going on a plane, some planes allow the pets under your seat (don't know if this still applies so you'd have to ask). If traveling by car or have the cat in a camper then your vet will know how much your cat will need and how long the sedation will last.
