Why does he need anxiety meds?

Can that one be crushed up in his food as well? I have the worst time trying to pill my cats.

The label says ''Scull cap and Valerian for anxiety, excitability, nervousness and travel sickness''.
It was the vet told us to get it when he went for check up lastweek.

It's really sad to read about Zooropa's (or any other kitty's) health problems.

Cats are such lovely creatures, they make amazing pets and give us unconditional love, so sad that they have problems too. They shouldn't.

Did the vet tell you to get him fixed yet? If not I'm really surprised. In the U.S. this is one of the first things that are done on cats and kittens. I honestly think having him fixed will solve a lot of his problems.

It never ceases to amaze me the total difference in common practices in the US vs. Europe.

What exactly is wrong w/ him, Wayne?

Ok, last thursday he went for a check up, because we had come back from Dublin and need to get his final shot.

When we got him back from the cat hotel, he contacted fleas, which he never had before we went on vacation.
So that was another thing to checked up for him.

We was also going to get him booked for nueturing.

During the vet's check up with him, the vet noticed that he was uncomfortable been picked up, and he was diagnosed with a bowel problem.
So he was given medication and also given special sensitiviity cat food, becasue the stuff we get he was allergic to.

He said that they cant do the nueturing until his bowel/stomach issue was sorted, thats why he gave us the anxiety medication as an alternative.

He said once thats out of the way he cane be neutered and will he will be calmer.
He has go back next week again to see how he is.

Well I'm glad to hear you plan to get him neutered. I think once that is done after a few months of adjustment you will notice a big difference in him, for the better.

I've never heard of giving anxiety meds for a bowel problem, though I am by no means a vet! bonosloveslave should pop in here. Poor guy I hope he feels better soon

It's prolly the side affects/reactions of the meds for the bowel prob causing him to be restless.... Would a second opinion be ok, or would this one vets opinion suffice??

And then the anxiety meds would perhaps cause another reaction.

Well I'd say if he's not better in time by the advice of one vet, a second opinion could never hurt. Each vet practices slightly different I've found. Honestly most of the time they just do a process of elimination since cats cant talk and its much harder to diagnose them.

Thye aren't for that.
I've told you how hyper he gets
And you said once he gets neutered he will be calm. But he cant be neutered until the bowel issue is sorted.

So the anxiety/restlessness medication is just for the meantime until he can get done.
Which will hopefully be sorted with the next few weeks.
