Moving and need to sedate my 3 cats and 2 dogs

We are moving in a few days time.
From KZN to Capetown the trip is about 1700km`s.
We have three cats and two small dogs. For how long a period of time will i be able to keep them sedated? Would i need to NPM them the previous evening to prevent them from being car sick?

Get Valium or something similar from the vet.

Depends what you use. You' ll probably need to get meds via your vet so ask him about dosage, duration etc.

Sedation isn' t the same as knocking them out cold, so I really doubt they' re in any danger of choking.
