cat sensitive to meds

Hi there

My cat has had reactions to long term steriods (lump at site of injection, lethargy, dull coat as well as to his annual vaccination (swollen jaw so that he could not eat or drink).

At his annual exam the doc suggested a teeth cleaning. How do I know that he will not have a reaction to sedation if we do this?

Any suggestions?

Hi Ren

There are many different types of sedatives available and you vet will be able to identify the products that your cathay react to. They may also have a trial where they may inject a small vol of product to see if there is indeed a reaction. If you do not feel comfortable then please discuss the matter with you vet and see what alternatives you have - diet ) Hills t/d and or manual removal of the tarter without finger nail/ dental instrument.

Kind regards
