Customer Question
We are moving from...

We are moving from San Diego to Houston with 3 cats. Our veterinarian in San Diego gave us alprazolam to help with their stress. One cat started howling and pacing when we got to the hotel tonight. Since it had been more than 12 hours since his last dose we thought he was stressed and gave him another dose. The same behavior but much worse is happening. We are in a very small town with no 24 hour clinics. The dose is a quarter mg. Also, he has not urinated since the trip started on Sunday. He has pooped, eaten and drank water.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the Cat will be able to digest that. What is the Cat's name?

Dudley

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Dudley?

My husband says his head is hot. He seems to calm a bit when my husband rubs his head.
