Customer Question

Can I give ambien to my cat? If so how much is safe? He has a high white cell count and problems with his liver. But he's so uncomfortable I'd like to help him get some sleep.

No, ambien is not recommended for cats is considered toxic. I would try to offer him some rescue remedy in his water to see if this will help to relax him. Your veterinarian should have an oncall service where you can contact him/her to see if they can dispense any medications safely to your cat.

Please let me know if you have further questions.

Thank you
