Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 16 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.
I am so very sad to hear Yeti is suffering. Renal failure in the later stages can be difficult and most cats have the surprising ability to linger in a state of dehydration and starvation for weeks. Unfortunately, there is no good at-home ability to safely and smoothly euthanize your cat. If you are searching for this at home then I must recommend have a traveling vet come to you. You may administer lorazepam at 0.125 – 0.25mg per day but it is not a drug that will aid in putting him to sleep. It may alleviate some anxiety, though, but it can cause profound depression or some cats get the opposite and become hyper excited and dysphoric. If you were searching for something to provide pain relief, then this is not a good choice; I would recommend ask your vet to prescribe something like buprenorphine for him.
I am at a point I need to know what questions you have. I hope that the information I provided has been helpful.
