Hi there. This is Dr. Gawlik.


I'm afraid there is little chance of successfully, and more importantly, HUMANELY euthanizing a cat in this manner.


A drug overdose is likely to cause vomiting (and certainly lethargy) without death.


Please seek in-person veterinary assistance with this.


Let me know if I can be of further information.
