Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi! I'm CalCatDoc and I can help with your question.
I will need to check htis one, give me a moment.
That's from the AVMA - let me look some more to see if I can find safe dose info
How much does your cat weigh?
ok let me do some math
Three times that dose can be used therapeutically in the cat up to twice a day, so he should be safe.
0.1-0.2 mg/kg once or twice a day for certain behavioral issues
You may notice some sedation. If he gets groggy enough for you to get worried, or if it interferes with his drinking enough water in this heat I would be concerned, but not otherwise.
I occasionally use a similar medication in one of my two cats at home.
thanks so much. It's cool here so I don't think he'll need to drink that much.
Ok, just keep an eye on him since he's an oldster, and don't let him have any more, lol
