I am a Family Medicine doc - and I just reached out to a vet friend who works in my clinic for suggestions for you.
1 option he suggests is benadryl, at 0.5 to 2mg per pound of animal...
He says also that helping the cat feel secure and safe is important. blankets, familiar smells, etc
ok. just out of curiosity, what dosages did you try?
how old is the cat?
will the cat be in the cabin? or below?
Acepromazine is the option of choice after benadryl. Vet recommends 5 mg
gotcha. yeah, so acepromazine 5mg is next step
he can take it orally.
the vet is telling me 5mg is safe. of course, this is not consider comorbidities or age or hydration status.
it looks like it's a relative of chlorpromazine for humans, but it's a unique vet product
